Tuition Costs and Fees

OCU Tuition and Fees

The cost of an education at Oakland City University is among the lowest among accredited private senior colleges in the region.

Tuition, fees, and room and board charges for the full semester are payable at the time of registration. Students are not admitted to classes until charges are paid in full or arrangements for deferred payment are made with the Business Office. Any student owing a balance from a previous semester will not be permitted to enroll for a future class until the balance is paid in full or satisfactory arrangements have been made with the Collection/Loan Officer.

Our Net Price Calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.

*A maximum grant of $200 per credit hour will be awarded to all qualifying military students when they enroll. Military grants are credited to the student’s account for books/technology fees up to a maximum of $200. Remaining funds up to the maximum grant per credit hour are applied to the tuition fee. For TA eligible students taking in-seat courses, the grant is credited to tuition only because books/fees are not included in the tuition fee.
