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

What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
OCU has a close-knit community and warm, welcoming atmosphere. There's an organization (or organizations!) for everyone. If you can afford it, I can't think of a better place to get your college education!
Nicole from Oklahoma City, OK
A private university that has a very good student to professor ratio and only the highest degree of professor are hired. This a very good school recommended to anyone.
Lorenzo from Oklahoma City, OK
Everyone I have encountered at the University as been extrememly helpful and nice. They have been a fantastic group of people and are willing to help you with whatever you need. The campus is clean and simple to navigate. Tuition cost is quite high but the financial aid department has been very helpful as well.
Brandie from Oklahoma City, OK
OCU is a great and prestigious University. It offers great opportunities to students while giving them an excellent education. All of the teachers have their Masters or Doctorate degrees and the class sizes are small enough to provide each student with personal contact from the teacher.
