Credit Card Payments

COVID-19 Guidelines

Various Charges Families May Incur

At OSSM, there is no charge for tuition, room and board, although families may incur fees during the year. These include costs to replace lost or damaged items, including key cards, school property, textbooks and OSSM-assigned computers.

At the beginning of the school year, each student receives a key card, which allows access to residence hall rooms as well as academic buildings. If a student loses or damages it, there is a $15 charge for a replacement. For payment, students/parents can pay with cash or online with a credit card at the time of replacement. In addition, the charge can be billed to the student’s account with an invoice being sent to parents at the end of the semester. 

Charges for textbook-, school property- and computer-related damages will be determined at the end of the school year or at the time they are returned, with an invoice sent to parents indicating total amount due. Payment can be arranged with the Finance Office.

For more information on these policies, please contact Shannon Gorbet in the Finance Office at shannon.gorbet@ossm.edu.

OSSM will host its annual convocation on Sunday, August 14, at 2 p.m. It will be held on campus.

Convocation celebrates the start of the next school year, and recognizes all students. Seniors also receive their Governor’s Scholar medallion.
