Did you know that people who graduate with a college degree earn much more over the course of a lifetime than those who don't? Of course at OBU, we don't define success by how much money our graduates make. But by developing the skills you need to create a secure life, you will create a strong platform from which to help your family, friends and the world at large.
Invest in yourself, your mind and your faith by securing an education that's not just about professional skills, but also addresses the needs of a curious mind and an engaged soul.
Freshmen will incur an additional $210 or $275 charge for meals during J-term depending on student's choice of plan.
All first-time freshmen are required to attend J-Term. They may select one course from the First Year Experience (FYE) selection that will be paid with an OBU scholarship. (J-Term courses that are not FYE will be charged at the J-term rate ($515/hour). A J-Term housing scholarship will also be applied to cover cost of J-Term housing as long as the student paid housing charges during fall or spring.
When looking at our fee structure, keep in mind that more than 94 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid and/or scholarships—and that our costs are well below the national average for the personalized education OBU offers.
