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

4.08 Average Rating
I know out of state tuition is higher than in-state tuition, but I think every penny is worth it to go to OU. I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything. I know it's expensive, I am a full time student and working full time as well, but I wouldn't want to go any where else except here.
Elle from Oklahoma City, OK
I am out of state It is not Bad for out of state but still expensive as heck the Fin Aid office really didn't offer much
Tonya from Pampa, TX
5 stars! I don't even know how to put my emotions into words with this one. Let me just tell you, I ran out of money after my freshman year and had to go to a local community college. I've been knocking out credits and work my butt off to make money to get back to Norman. I do it because I miss it. I love the school so much I'm willing to do pretty much anything I can to get back there. I'm trying to show that out of state tuition whose boss!
Samantha from Lewisville, TX
The University of Oklahoma, or OU, uses its tuition and fees wisely. With a beautiful landscapes, great places to study and delicious food, the fees are spent towards the students. The tuition is not exorbitantly high and the overall cost is fairly decent as compared to other research institutions in the nation. Coming to OU, and receiving this higher educational degree will be very worth it in the long run.
Julia from Edmond, OK
With all the renovations, new buildings, and agricultural maintenance around campus, you really see your money put to use.
As an out-of-state student, tuition is more expensive, so I had to apply for a lot outside scholarships to lower the costs. I was still saving money because my out-of-state tuition at OU was cheaper than in-state-tuition in California. OU still makes an effort to give at least some scholarship money to its students, so this helps too. As with any college, make sure to sign up for FAFSA to get the most financial aid possible.
Marissa from Pacifica, CA
I am an out of state student and it is definitely not cheap. Financial aid did not offer me that much so I have to work ten times harder for scholarships and take out loans. Even though my family is paying an arm and a leg for me to attend, I feel I am getting a top notch education here and I will be very successful once I graduate and begin my career.
Siobhan from El Paso, TX
The university is a little expensive, but everything you get from OU is high-quality. The money goes to rebuilding buildings as well as the community. It also goes toward making your experience at OU fun and fulfilling.
Brianna from Frisco, TX
Out of state tuition is expensive! Although I get some of the cost waived through a scholarship, it still is not nearly as cheap as in state. Also DON'T BUY BOOKS FROM THE BOOKSTORE. Buying used online or renting online is definitely the way to go. Take as many community college classes or AP classes as you can. Also look for classes at OU that count for multiple requirements, so you don't have to take multiple classes.
Kathryn from Norman, OK
For me, OU is definitely worth it. Of Course, in-state tuition is lower than out-of-state tuition but its still worth it. I am so glad that I came here. I really didn't have a full plan for college. I just sort-of applied for this college and OSU and just went for OU to be going for it. Then, when I got here I was blown away. I am so glad that I chose OU simply for the fact that the people there are awesome and OU is just plain awesome.
