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

3.91 Average Rating
The Colvin Center is recreation center at Oklahoma State. Its one of the top 10 in the country. It offers a huge gym consisting of free weights and just about every machine you would ever need. It also has i think 4 or 5 basketball courts, an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, running track, virtual golf, a rock climbing wall (a big hit- you can either climb when you want, or take a class), racket ball, table tennis, and more. They also offer free aerobic or martial art classes for any student.

Education - for an agriculture major, engineering major, or hotel restaurant and Management major, Oklahoma State is a great college for you to go to. Especially if you live in oklahoma with the instate tuition. Oklahoma State has the lowest instate tuition in the Big 12.
Adam from Tulsa, OK
Definitely worth the price. The opportunities are top notch and the dedication of the teachers is great. Lots of learning for a relatively small price.
Nicole from Riverside, CA
While room and board is a little bit on the pricey side, OSU is the best buy in the big 12, so says the OkState homepage. Where you live on campus determines how much you pay a month. Meal plan is a great deal for freshmen! However, you do have a minimum of $1000 a semester your first year. Meal plan can be spent at any place that sells food including the markets. With the fees that you pay it includes the gym (which is top notch), all of the computer labs and printers (if you have your own printer great.. but you already pay for the ink in the school ones), lab fees depending on your schedule and upkeep of the sidewalks and reconstruction of the buildings.
Amanda from Oklahoma City, OK
Although the cost may seem too outrageous for some students, OSU accommodates to the financial needs of their students. They give out numerous scholarships for all types of students, and work to help find the right option for your finances. You will get your money's worth here at OSU; the courses are phenomenal, and the campus gives plenty of opportunities for you to feel at home. Choosing to come to Oklahoma State University will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Allie from Lawton, OK
Having to pay out of state tuition can really add up but OSU is a excellent school and it is worth the price tag. All the academic programs that are offered at OSU are successful thanks to the wonderful and committed professors. The price is worth it because without question you will get a quality education. OSU is the best bang for my buck and I am glad I came here for school.
Kevin from Dallas, TX
It's very cheap for academically strong students.
Calvin from Edmond, OK
I applied to many of my in state colleges and I ended up going here for the scholarships I did receive that cut out 10,000 out of each year's tuition. The school has very cheap but excellent health services. I got the flu once and walked straight in to the health center, only had to pay 12 bucks and a prescription for ten bucks. I saved more money there than at my personal doctor at home.
Katherine from Flower Mound, TX
If paying out of state touition, it can quickly get pretty expensive, but it is 100% worth it. Everything that your money goes to is of high quality and it makes living at OSU that much better.
