Cost of Attendance

College is an investment in your future. OSU's Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid Office wants to help you navigate the process to take advantage of all your options. The total cost of attendance can be found in the tables below, depending on your residency status. If you're comparing the costs of different schools, make sure you know each school's total cost of attendance, including tuition and fees.

OSU awards nearly $300 million in scholarships, grants and financial aid each year, including great out-of-state and international scholarships, that can make the cost of attendance comparable to in-state schools for many students. We offer great in-state scholarships for Oklahoma students as well. We will work with you to find the best solution for your individual situation, so you know you're getting a quality education for a great price.

OSU is dedicated to providing an accessible and affordable education for our students. Block rate tuition is a great tool for students to make the most of their tuition dollars and finish college on time. Block rate tuition charges a single rate for students taking 12 to 18 credit hours. 

Estimated educational expenses are shown below for the 2017-18 school year. Remember, your actual costs will vary. These estimates are based on 12 to 18 credit hours per semester, so you may spend more or less than these average estimates. For complete information, please visit the Scholarships & Financial Aid website.

OSU also offers families a great semester-based payment option plan
