Advantage Payback Scholarship

After high school graduation, ORU will pay back the total amount spent toward your Advantage tuition, dollar-for-dollar, in the form of a scholarship, when the student enrolls as a full-time residential freshman at ORU.

This scholarship is exclusive to the cost of tuition paid and does not include the cost of books, the Follett Access Fee, parking permit, class fees, or other costs associated with your enrollment outside the cost of tuition.

This is a one-time, non-renewable award. Students enrolled in an online program or virtual program are not eligible. Additionally, this award does not stack with the full-tuition Quest scholarship or athletic scholarships.

Students interested in taking on-campus dual-enrollment courses through ORU’s Advantage Program may choose any 100 or 200 level courses available to current ORU students. Advantage students may petition to take higher level courses if needed.
