Tuition

The cost of attending college can be overwhelming. Not only does OU assist students financially through scholarships and financial aid, but OU offers students flat rate tuition. A student can take up to 21 hours per semester without paying additional tuition, helping them stay on track to graduate in four years and offers an opportunity for double majors and minors.
