Creating a Financial Plan

A Spirit-empowered degree from ORU is life-changing and worth the investment. Use the direct and indirect costs listed on this page to start planning your educational budget while we partner with you to discuss the many pathways to consider in financing your degree. 

Direct Costs Tuition + Fees

Indirect Costs Books + Travel + Additional Expenses

Financial Aid Scholarships + Grants + Federal Aid

Your Educational Budget = (Direct Costs + Indirect Costs) - (Financial Aid)


Many of our graduate students benefit from scholarships, federal assistance and our interest-free payment plans, which can greatly help you reduce the need to borrow. If you need help creating a financial plan, connect with us today.  

Listed Cost vs. Actual Cost

It’s important to remember that 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.
