The payment of monies owed to the institution may be made by cash, credit card, debit card, money order, check, third party or Title IV funds.
***NOTE: Books & Supplies can be purchased separately on the open market place. Students can opt-out and buy them at the vendor of their choice. Any opened or used items cannot be returned.
In accordance with federal tax credit legislation, the institution will mail form 1098-T reporting qualified tuition and related expenses – to student’s current address by the end of January. This information will also be reported to the IRS. Students should check with their tax preparer to determine eligibility for federal educational credit and the amount of deduction.
PERSONAL SERVICE FEES
During their training at Oceanside College of Beauty, students often desire to get hair, nail, and skin care services done while attending school. The Institution allows students to have this work performed on themselves by classmates for a nominal charge (70 percent off our regular service prices). Personal services must be requested in writing and approved by an instructor. The complete personal service policy and price list is available at the front desk or in the instructor office.
STATE OF CALIFORNIA STUDENT TUITION RECOVERY FUND
You must pay the state-imposed assessment for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all of the following applies to you:
- You are a student in an educational program, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all or part of your tuition either by cash, guaranteed student loans, or personal loans, and
- Your total charges are not paid by any third-party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay the third party.
You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment, if either of the following applies:
- You are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program, or
- Your total charges are paid by a third party, such as an employer, government program or other payer, and you have no separate agreement to repay the third party.
The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by students in educational programs who are California residents or are enrolled in a residency program attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.
You may be eligible for STRF if you are a California resident or are enrolled in a residency program, prepaid tuition, paid the STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following:
- The school closed before the course of instruction was completed.
- The school’s failure to pay refunds or charges on behalf of a student to a third party for license fees or any other purpose, or to provide equipment or materials for which a charge was collected within 180 days before the closure of the school.
- The school’s failure to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federally guaranteed student loan program as required by law or to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the school prior to closure in excess of tuition and other costs.
- There was a material failure to comply with the Act or this Division within 30 days before the school closed or, if the material failure began earlier than 30 days prior to closure, the period determined by the Bureau.
- An inability after diligent efforts to prosecute, prove, and collect on a judgment against the institution for a violation of the Act.
However, no claim can be paid to any student without a social security number or a taxpayer identification number.
Effective January 1, 2015, all institutions will be required to immediately refrain from collecting STRF assessments. The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment rate has changed from fifty cents ($.50) per one thousand dollars ($1,000) of institutional charges to zero ($0).
Students enrolled at the time of school closure (or within 60 days of the school’s closure) may be eligible for reimbursement through the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF). The STRF exists to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by a student in an educational program at a qualifying institution if the student was a California resident (or was enrolled in a residency program.)
The student of a closed school must have:
- Prepaid the tuition,
- Paid the STRF assessment, and
- Suffered loss
A student seeking reimbursement should file the Application for Student Tuition Recovery Fund(form STRF App Rev. 8/14). For any questions, or additional information, student can contact the STRF Unit at (888) 370-7589 and select option 5 when prompted, or may send an email to STRFClosedSchool@dca.ca.gov.
- The application must be fully completed and received by the Bureau, with supporting documents that include, but need not be limited to, the enrollment agreement, promissory notes, if any, and any receipts, within two years from date of the closure notice explaining the student’s rights under STRF, whether provided by the institution or the Bureau, or a maximum of four years if the student received no closure notice.
- Students whose total charges are paid by a third party payer are not eligible to apply for payment by the Fund. The Bureau may conduct an investigation to verify whether to grant or deny a claim.
It is important that you keep copies of the enrollment agreement, financial aid papers, receipts or any other information that documents the monies paid to the School. Questions regarding the STRF may be directed to the Bureau’s address or web site:
