Cost of Attendance

University of the Ozarks is committed to providing exceptional value at an affordable cost.

In planning for your college education, we believe that it is important to understand what your total cost will be.

Educational Costs

Cost of attendance is made up of two components, Direct Costs which represents a fixed amount set by the University and Indirect Costs which can be largely influenced by student behavior. University of the Ozarks Direct Costs are as follows:

2018-2019     Semester Year
Tuition (12-18 hours)    $12,115 $24,230
Dining Option (19 Meal Plan)    $2,000 $4,000
Double Room (King, Smith or MacLean Hall)    $1,700 $3,400
Books    $500 $1,000
On Campus Direct Costs    $16,315 $32,630

University of the Ozarks Indirect Costs or allowances include:

      Semester Year
Travel    $450 $900
Miscellaneous Allowance         $750 $1,500
University of the Ozarks Cost of Attendance     $17,515 $35,030

The Cost of Attendance is calculated to create the maximum amount of aid a student might need. Very few students will need the maximum amount of aid created within the indirect cost category. We will package all students at Direct Cost and work with you one-on-one for your indirect costs.
