Making a Financial Plan

A degree from ORU is a life-changing investment for you and your future. As you review the cost of attending, remember that nearly 100% of our full-time undergraduate students do not pay the full cost of attendance. Like them, you can benefit from many forms of financial aid for which you may qualify. We’re here to help you understand the ins-and-outs of financial aid and the offer being made to you. See what assistance you may receive when you connect with us.

Listed Cost vs. Actual Cost

Keep in mind that your actual yearly cost is what’s left over after you add in all financial aid opportunities - scholarships, grants, loans, etc. - listed in 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 confusing, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

These are given based upon merit and do not need to be repaid. We offer various scholarship awards ranging all the way to full-tuition, like our Quest Whole Leader Scholarship. Please note, Academic Scholarships and Quest Whole Leader Scholarships can be combined unless you receive a full-tuition scholarship.

These are offered based on need and do not need to be repaid. Students will be required to complete a FAFSA to qualify for grants. Learn more about the FAFSA.

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.

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

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

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.
