Cost of Education Scholarship

What is the College of the Ozarks Cost of Education Scholarship?
This is a term you’ll become familiar with if you attend Hard Work U. The “Cost of Education” is the cost to the College for providing an educational opportunity….approximately $17,900 per year for each student. Most institutions pass along a portion of this cost as tuition; this is not the case at College of the Ozarks. The College guarantees to meet all of this cost for each full-time student by using earnings from its endowment, operation of its own mandatory student work program, accepting student aid grants, gifts and other sources. Each full-time student's Cost of Education is met 100% by participating in the work program, and a combination of private, institutional and federal/state student aid. The institutional aid provided for each student is the College of the Ozarks Scholarship.

What is so special about a College of the Ozarks Cost of Education Scholarship?
Somewhere out there is a donor, actually several, who believe in and support what our unique institution stands for: Hard work, Christian values, freedom from debt, and higher education in a Christian setting. When you accept an offer of admission to College of the Ozarks, you make a commitment to uphold the standards of an institution that is different from the norm. C of O is not a school where drinking and partying is acceptable, nor is it a place where unwholesome attire is the standard. It is a place where we believe you will learn and grow as a Christian, and as a future professional member of the work force. While many folks in this day and age have chosen to lower standards, at C of O we have chosen to adhere to high personal standards; standards that we believe equip students to become successful contributors to society. So, what makes a C of O Scholarship so special? It is special because it comes from donors who believe in the College, and believe in you….young people who have so much to offer society.
