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

3.65 Average Rating
Its the 3rd largest university in the state of Oklahoma, yet the tuition is so much less than OU or OSU!
Lauren from Bixby, OK
This college is rapidly growing. It is the third largest university in the state of Oklahoma. The tuition is not as expensive as OU or OSU. This campus loves to encourage its students to get involved in campus activities, and the staff make sure to let students feel welcomed.
Jordin from Edmond, OK
Compared to all the other schools here in Oklahoma it is an affortable four year school, and it is closer to home.
Whitney from Oklahoma City, OK
UCO is very cheap to attend. The meal plans, housing, and classes are very affordable for everyone.
Angeline from Altus, OK
The biggest bang for your buck at UCO is the experience you take away from it. Some of my favorite memories are the football games I performed at, or the campus-wide events that my group would attend. There's never a dull moment on campus if you take the time to talk with the people you meet.
Eric from Oklahoma City, OK
UCO is a great college at a great price! It has one of the most affordable tuition costs of any other Oklahoma college. You also get a quality education, and professors that care about your education.
Jesse from Piedmont, OK
UCO has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state. You get professors- not TA's. There is always free tutoring- even for upper level classes. There are countless scholarships and fee waivers through the school. Just apply and see what happens. You will get something! We have a really cool transformative learning initiative going on where students get their own online portfolios for job searches, smaller class sizes with novel group activities, field trips, and of course, undergraduate research! I'm telling you- nowhere else will give you all of these opportunities and a certified degree for the price.
Mikasa from Collinsville, OK

Justin from Edmond, OK
