When searching for a college, the important question is not, “What is the total cost?” but rather, “How much will it cost me?”
Oklahoma Christian’s price is far below the national private-school average of $38,589, and is further reduced by financial aid that makes OC’s nationally-recognized education competitive with many state-supported institutions.
With more than 90% of Oklahoma Christian students receiving grants and scholarships, the average OC student only pays about 55% of the total cost of attendance. Including all financial aid (federal loans and work study), the average student’s out-of-pocket cost is reduced to approximately 40% of tuition, room, and meal plan costs.
Truly, few investments can deliver a return more than a college education. “According to U.S. Census data, the typical college graduate can expect a lifetime earnings potential of well over $1 million more than that of a person with only a high school diploma.”
