Giving To C of O

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.

We appreciate your interest in College of the Ozarks as well as your consideration of financially supporting "Hard Work U." There are a variety of worthwhile giving opportunities, and we hope you will find one of special interest.
