Tuition

We understand attending college is a big investment. Not only does OU assist students financially through scholarships and financial aid, but OU offers students flat-rate tuition. Students can take up to 21 hours per semester without paying additional tuition, helping them stay on track to graduate in four years. The rate is based on OU's current 15 credit hour rate of tuition and hourly mandatory fees.
