Keep your momentum going with summer school!
For 2021, ORU is discounting regular summer school tuition. Any undergraduate Summer class can be taken for $500 per credit hour.
Additional discounts are available based on your total summer enrollment:
- If 9 credit hours are taken cumulatively during any of the on-campus Summer sessions, the cost per credit hour will be reduced to $450 per hour.
- If at least 10 hours (undergraduate) or 9 hours (graduate) are taken during any of the summer sessions you will receive free on-campus housing during the session. Online courses count toward the summer housing discount when as at least 50% of the courses you take are residential, meaning that they are summer school or graduate modular course offerings as opposed to online offerings.
If you’re interested and were not enrolled at ORU in the Spring 2021 semester, connect with an Admissions staff member at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 918.495.6518.
FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE
Federal financial aid may be available for your summer school enrollment of six hours or more. If you filed the FAFSA for 2020-2021 and received federal financial aid for the fall/spring semesters, no additional application is required. All federal aid requires a minimum enrollment of six summer credit hours to qualify.
The ORU Financial Aid Office will review the summer enrollment of every current federal aid recipient and notify you of your potential federal grants or loans via ORU email and Vision. Aid available includes the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Direct Student Loans, Federal Direct Parent Loans, and Oklahoma’s Promise Grants.
If you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident and have not previously filed the FAFSA online for the 2020-2021 academic year, the form is available at www.fafsa.gov until June 30, 2021. Newly submitted FAFSA information will be sent to the Financial Aid office electronically by the US Department of Education within 3 business days, and you will be included in the next group of students reviewed for federal aid eligibility. If you need assistance completing the form or have questions about federal financial aid for summer, our Financial Aid Representatives are available to help you at 918-495-6510 or ORUFinaid@oru.edu.
IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL COURSES
All Residential Summer classes (Sessions 1-4) will be held on-campus and virtually this summer. Students can attend and participate via face-to-face or through Zoom. The University does not need to know beforehand which attendance method you will select.
Every Summer course will be taught either virtually and/or in-person if possible (given applicable health restrictions). Any lab classes will be taught in the NEC building or the GLC, and all lab sessions will be available virtually as well. It is anticipated that most classes will be held in the GLC.

360 WORK PROGRAM
The Summer 360 program allows current students to work on-campus during the summer, earn money, and receive a summer housing waiver (free housing!). Summer jobs start getting posted on Handshake in early April.
The student employee must work a total of 360 hours between graduation and the end of July. This averages to about 30 hours of work per week. The student may work up to two jobs to accumulate needed hours. It is the student's responsibility to reach a total of 360 hours of work in the allotted time frame. Housing charges will be recorded on a student's account until the 360 hours are reached, at which point a scholarship will be applied for free housing.
