  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
Oakland City University is a great christian school with a very welcoming environment to everyone who attends. I love the school because it is rather small, but with being small it is easier to have great communication with your teachers and other students in your class. Oakland City University is placed in a small town, but I would probably rate it a 9 on a 10 scale because it is such a great school especially for the degree i am going for which is teaching.
