Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
Obviously, Oklahoma City University is expensive. However, if you are majoring in law, music, dance, art, education, or any other performing degree it is a great deal (especially if you can get a scholarship). To do well and really get the most bang for your buck, you need to be determined and disciplined. This is especially true for the performance majors. All music majors have to take piano and music theory, so music majors be prepared to do work outside of what you might normally do.
Shavonne from Oklahoma City, OK
Oklahoma City University is extremely expensive compared to the public universities in Oklahoma, yet the learning experience is superb. The facilities are very nice and the cafeteria offers quite a few choices of meal options. For a private institution Oklahoma City University's cost is reasonable.
Hillary from Arcadia, OK
They help me find scholarships and are a lot cheeper than other schools. *Plus you get one-on-one and don't have to be in a class of over 100 students.
Stacee from Moore, OK
Its a pretty expensive school, but you get small classes, and you know most of the professors on a first name basis and your degree is going to mean a lot to employers. Most OCU grads are willing to help a future grad out job wise.
Hannah from OKC, OK
Tuition is costly, but the size of the school and classes is worth it. More one on one and they know what it's like to be a working adult with children while attending school. I've got nothing but good things to say about OCU.
Brandie from Oklahoma City, OK
It is the most expensive school in Oklahoma, yet they offer several scholarship opportunities.
Kate from Oklahoma City, OK
For my budget, the school is a little expensive but I've never considered switching because I love it so much.
