The Power of an OSU Degree in OKC

Chances are you’ve heard about the recent tuition and mandatory fee increases that Oklahoma’s 25 public colleges and universities are making for the fall semester.


OSU-OKC was able to keep our increase of 2.4% far below the statewide average of 7.1% for two-year and community colleges and only raising our cost per credit hour by only $2.95. (Which equals a bump of $88.50 per year if you’re doing the math.)


Other two-year colleges in the Oklahoma City area are increasing tuition and mandatory fees by 4.9% to 8.3%, or as much as $10.55 per credit hour for the fall semester.


Here’s how OSU-OKC’s recent tuition and fee increase compared to other Oklahoma colleges and universities:

OSU-OKC 2.4%
Statewide average 5.1%
Two-year and community colleges 7.1%
