Listed Cost vs. Actual Cost

It’s important to remember your actual cost is what’s left over after you include all financial aid opportunities—scholarships, grants, loans, etc.—listed on your financial aid offer. Chances are, your actual cost may be significantly lower than the listed cost. Knowing the difference doesn’t have to be hard. We’re here to help you every step of the way.

Types of Financial Aid

ORU is committed to helping you reduce the cost of attending through any available avenue. Whether it be financial aid, scholarships or grants, we’re prepared to navigate all available options with you. Below is a quick overview of some types of financial aid, but we’d like to connect and discuss more with you in greater detail.

Federal Loans

These are offered based on need and do need to be repaid with interest. Students will be required to complete a FAFSA to qualify for federal loans. Learn more about the FAFSA.

Private Educational Loans

These are non-governmental loans made available to students by banks for the purpose of paying for college expenses. They do need to be repaid with interest.

Scholarships for International Students

Because international students are not eligible for federal financial aid grants and loan opportunities made available through the FAFSA, we offer a number of scholarships for international students.

Interest-Free Payment Plan

We offer a flexible, interest-free monthly payment plan option that can help you reduce the need to borrow finances while paying off your remaining balance over time. Payment plans range from 4 to 12 months.
