College of the Ozarks Cost of Education Scholarship
What is "No Tuition" and how does that work?
Work Program + Federal and State Grants + College of the Ozarks Scholarship = Your annual Cost of Education!
Each student participates in the on-campus work program for 15 hours per week and two forty-hour work weeks. Credits from participation in the work program, plus any federal and/or state aid for which students qualify, plus a College of the Ozarks Cost of Education Scholarship combine to meet each student’s full Cost of Education. The Cost of Education is the cost to provide academic courses for students. This does not include Room and Board.
Generous donors, who believe in what College of the Ozarks represents, make financial contributions, enabling the College to provide Cost of Education scholarships in exchange for work on campus. Students work to pay a portion of the Cost of Education charges by participating in the work program during the academic year. If students qualify for Federal or Missouri state aid, those amounts are applied to the cost as well. The remaining balance is covered by a College of the Ozarks Cost of Education Scholarship for each student! Zero is the balance due for Cost of Education!
Room and Board costs and other charges incurred by students are found on the Costs webpage.
