Detailed Tuition and Cost

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. When reviewing the information below, remember:

Direct Costs + Indirect Costs - Financial Aid = Educational Budget

Direct Costs

Tuition + Room + Meal Plan + Fees = Direct Costs

Keep in mind, that most of our undergraduate students benefit from scholarships, federal assistance and our interest-free payment plans, which can greatly help you reduce the need to borrow. We’d love to help you create a financial plan.
