At College of the Ozarks, we're looking for good students who have financial need. If you fit that bill, you might be a good candidate for admission!

College of the Ozarks relies heavily on charitable support to meet its annual budget. Whereas most colleges and universities charge tuition, College of the Ozarks does not. Approximately seventy percent of the College’s revenue is derived from gift income and earnings from endowment. Annual support from benefactors keeps the “Gates of Opportunity” open wide. This funding provides students the opportunity to earn their college education. Full-time students work fifteen hours per week to cover a portion of their cost of education. The remainder is underwritten through grants and scholarships, which are made available through donor provisions.
