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

4.03 Average Rating
There is a Chick-Fil-A on campus. Enough said, right?
Chris from Tulsa, OK
ORU is committed to making sure you have the best experience possible during your time here. They make the dorms as comfortable as they can, with upgrades every time you come back from a break. They do their best to help you with your studies, and get you into the right classes. They provide plenty of food options: the cafeteria, coffee shops, smoothie shops, and Chik-fil-a. There is also a great aerobics center, with an indoor track and olympic pool. Everything you need is at your fingertips.
Sarah from Fort Worth, TX
Whether or not my profession ever repays the whole cost of my tuition and MORE, the relationships I built here at ORU, and the knowledge I gained are without a doubt worth the cost of tuition.
Rachel from Tulsa, OK
I must admit that ORU is an expensive University and such a financial burden may seem overwhelming. However, the University offers numerous scholarship opportunities such as the Whole Person Scholarship which is a full tuition scholarship for 4 years awarded to 25 incoming students every year. Other academic and extracurricular scholarships are available on campus. For the extra money, students can experience a smaller more personal classroom environment, a spiritually guided lecture setup, bigger dorm rooms, chapel twice a week, and a personalized caring spirit-filled campus.
Amber from Tulsa, OK
Oral Roberts University is expensive for some, not as expensive for others. I don't come from a family with lots of College Savings, but ORU has helped so much. Their Financial Aid department is a real blessing, and they have made it possible for me to attend this fantastic University. With the quality of the staff, the loving and rich atmosphere, and the networking that you will have available, the price-tag is well-worth the prospect of what ORU has to offer.
John from Tulsa, OK
You get what you put into it.
Chandler from Georgetown, DE
The school is expensive, but as long as you truly work hard and are at the school for the right reasons, you will most definitely get your money's worth!
Shelby from Harrison, AR
The university is expensive but definitely worth every penny! The school offers many scholarships and grants which really help. I was pretty concerned with the finances to attend but God has provided for me. I am now worry free!
Justine from Altus, OK
For the money that you spend you will receive quite a few benefits from the accredited degree programs to the student resources such as the recreation center and multiple sports fields. ORU also boasts an immediate hire rate for graduating seniors of over 95 percent.
Jordan from Clermont, FL
ORU is an expensive school but it's well worth it. Not only are you receiving a top-notch education but you are surrounded by brilliant, award winning professors and get to stay in beautiful dorms. There are many opportunities to succeed at ORU and our tuition money helps fund amazing programs like the APA and Tutoring centers.
