Giving To C of O

Thank You

Thank you for your interest in giving to College of the Ozarks. For more than 110 years, this unique institution has educated the head, heart, and the hands of countless young people.

Committed to Mission

College of the Ozarks is committed to its founding mission of providing a quality, Christian education to those who are found worthy, but who are without sufficient means to obtain such training. Instead of paying tuition, all full-time students work campus jobs to defray the cost of education. Upon participation in the Work Education Program, the College guarantees to meet the entire Cost of Education for students, allowing them the opportunity to graduate debt free. The College openly discourages debt by not participating in any federal, state, or private loan programs and leads by example through having no institutional debt of any kind.  Learn more about our no tuition college.

Donors Like You

This wouldn’t be possible without givers – those people like you whose generosity has made all the difference. It’s donors like you that enable us to fulfill our vision – to develop citizens of Christ-like character who are well-educated, hardworking, and patriotic. College of the Ozarks relies heavily on college donations and 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. College donations are essential for providing our students with a quality, Christian, debt-free education.
