Tuition, Fees and Cost Estimates

Tuition and Fees

It is important that students carefully consider the total cost of financing their education, from the entering term to the completion of their degree. If financial help will be needed beyond those funds which the student or the family is able to provide, the student should make the necessary applications for financial assistance well in advance of enrollment. Students should pay particular attention to early deadlines for application for grants, scholarships, work-study positions, and Perkins Loans. While the needs and resources of each student differ, the University can provide a general list of fees and expenses normally encountered.

Students are given information at the time they complete their enrollment on the procedures and deadlines for payment of tuition and fees. (See "Financial Obligation" in the “Bursar” section of this Catalog.)

The required tuition and mandatory fees for resident and nonresident students at Oklahoma State University are listed to the right. Resident and nonresident tuition rates are based on the undergraduate and graduate level of the course. All course offerings are listed by four-digit numbers with the first digit indicating the course level. Undergraduate courses are all courses with a first digit of 0 through 4. Graduate-division courses are all courses with the first digit 5 or above.

New freshmen who are Oklahoma residents are given the opportunity at the time of enrollment to select a guaranteed tuition rate that is locked in for four years. To maintain this rate, students must remain continuously enrolled as full-time students. The lock tuition rate is included in the undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees grid and detailed information is provided on the Office of the Bursar website at bursar.okstate.edu/lock-tuition-program.

For the most recent student costs refer to the Office of the Bursar website at http://bursar.okstate.edu/tuition-and-fees. Included in this section is information regarding fee definitions, refund policies, and residential life rates.

Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice, as provided by the University Board of Regents and OSRHE policies.

Starting fall 2014, OSU implemented a new block rate that includes tuition and University-wide fees for undergraduate students taking 12 to 18 credit hours. The “block” rate is one of OSU’s strategies to help students stay on target to finish college in 4 years. University-wide fees (also called mandatory fees) include: student activity fees, student facility fees, library automation and technology fee, health services fee, student development fee, Daily O’Collegian fee, academic records and maintenance fee, academic excellence fee, transit/parking services fee, advising/assessment fee, university technology infrastructure maintenance fee, academic facilities, life safety and security fee and student union renovation fee. Academic Service Fees such as specific course fees and/or college based fees are not included in the block rate and continue to be charged on a per-credit-hour basis. Additional block rate information is available at: blockrate.okstate.edu.

Mandatory Fees for Special Services

All students pay special fees each semester to contribute to the betterment and general welfare of the campus community.

Students regularly enrolled in the University are assessed facility, health, and activity fees that entitle them to use the Student Union, the Colvin Physical Education Center, and the Health Clinic, and that provide support for student governance, organizations, and programs.

The activity fees provide partial support to such programs, services, and organizations as the Student Government Association, collegial student councils and related student organizations, Allied Arts, fine arts, athletics, intramural activities and sports clubs, minority student organizations, and the Student Activities office.

The academic facilities fee funds renovation, maintenance, operations, and construction of classroom and other academic facilities necessary to support contemporary instruction and the demands of growing enrollment.

The academic excellence fee provides for new faculty positions and/or helps increase existing faculty salaries up to peer averages.

The academic records and maintenance fee provides for the basic graduation cost, the maintenance of the academic record system and issuance of official transcripts.

The advising and assessment fee provides for skills assessment and evaluation of students' capabilities at various stages of their academic careers, and to get feedback from students regarding their course work. This fee also supports the commitment to academic advising within each college to create a collaborative decision-making framework which students can identify and realize their educational goals. The goal is to preserve personalized advising services, reduce the adviser/student ratio in high demand areas and to develop advising technology such as degree audit systems to support an increased graduation rate. Support is also provided to students with career development, employment and internship services, including expanded interview opportunities, placement preparation, and other programs related to success after graduation.

The health services fee is assessed for comprehensive health and pharmacy services.

The library automation and technology fee defrays the cost of equipment, software, and other aspects related to operating the online computerized library service. This fee also protects student access to heavily-used electronic journals and other information services.

The life safety and security fee provides for the assessment and continued implementation of campus safety measures that includes the "Code Red" emergency notification system to notify students and staff via voice mail, e-mail or text messages should there be an emergency situation. It also helps fund positions within the OSU Police Department.

The O’Collegian fee supports the production and distribution of the newspaper, the Daily O’Collegian, which is an award-winning campus newspaper.

The transit and parking services fee assists with maintenance and operations of the OSU Transportation Services.

The student development fee is used to support student participation in orientation efforts which are linked to recruitment and retention of freshmen as well as transfer students. Development and leadership opportunities for minority students will also be provided by these resources. It is also used to support campus life to cover costs for the guest speaker series, Student Union programs and the Student Union Activities Board.

The university technology and infrastructure maintenance fee provides for the maintenance of existing facilities, and the expansion and development of central and collegiate facilities, software, and multimedia capabilities. This fee also covers increasing costs in multiple areas, including network and system infrastructure, hardware and software costs and communications.

Certain groups of students in special courses may be on campus for very short time intervals or may be required by the University to reside away from the campus area for the entire semester. Such students will be prevented from participating in campus activities and will not be charged student activity, health, student development, and transportation fees when enrolled:

  1. only in a specialized course(s) offered for a special interest group and not in any other course(s) in the University or
  2. in a course(s) which requires that the student reside out of area for the entire semester or summer session (clinical laboratory science, geology and forestry summer camps, etc.).

Other extenuating circumstances may be cause to consider denying use of and charge for these facilities or participation in activities sponsored by these fees.

The customary sponsored student fee is $350 per semester. Sponsored programs may also include items such as special training, research costs, equipment, enrichment, required travel or any other needs deemed necessary by the sponsor. It is the charge of the Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS) to provide the most complete and appropriate educational program for sponsored international students and scholars. The ISS sponsored program is designed to coordinate, expedite and administer all aspects of procedures pertaining to related training. Sponsoring agencies should direct all matters to the Office of International Students and Scholars, 250 Student Union. E-mail may be sent to karen.sebring@okstate.edu. The fax number is 405.744.8120.

Tuition and Fee Waivers for Faculty and Staff

Permanent, full-time, active members of the faculty and staff who meet the requirements under University Policy and Procedures 2-0108 or 3-0744 are eligible to enroll for credit or audit one course per semester or a maximum of five hours during normally scheduled working hours and receive discounted tuition and fees as indicated below. To be eligible under this fee policy, an employee must submit a completed Request for Faculty-Staff Fee Waiver form to the Office of the Registrar prior to the beginning of classes. If the form is not on file prior to the beginning of classes, the student will not be granted the waiver in fees. There is no limit on the number of courses a staff member may enroll in after normal working hours. If enrollment does not exceed one course, only the department head's approval is needed to receive a fee waiver. If the staff member is enrolled in more than one course, his or her dean and vice president must also give approval for a fee waiver.

For eligible full time 100% faculty or staff enrolled in University courses, the following fees will be waived:

  1. Student activity fees
  2. Student activity fee- Athletic fee
  3. Health Services fee
  4. Transit/Parking Services fee
  5. Student Development fee
  6. Daily O'Collegian fee

Faculty and staff must pay 50% of the general tuition, 100% of any additional fees not listed above, as well as 100% of any special course charges. Some courses taught through year-long independent study, extension and outreach are excluded. For faculty and staff members who enroll in NOC-Stillwater courses, the fees listed above may be waived, but no tuition is waived. For more information, contact the department offering the course to determine whether the tuition waiver applies.

Any individual 65 years or older may audit a class at no charge. The audit fee is also waived for faculty and staff who have retired from the University under the Oklahoma Teacher Retirement System's "Rule of 80" or "Rule of 90" regardless of age at time of retirement.

Refunds

Refunds and deposits that may be due a student will be first applied to encumbrances owed to the University.

Drop/Withdrawal Refund Policy.

A student dropping a course:
prior to the end of the sixth day of a regular semester, or the third day of the eight week summer session, or during the proportionate period for block or short courses, will receive a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees.

A student dropping a course:
after the sixth day of a regular semester but prior to the end of the second week, or after the third day of the eight week summer session through the fifth day, or during the proportionate period for block or short courses, will receive a partial refund of tuition and fees.

A student dropping a course:
after the second week of the regular semester, or after the first week of the eight week summer session, or during the proportionate period for block or short courses, will not receive a refund. (See Policy and Procedures Letter 02-0206.)

The institution may be required to return Federal Title IV aid for students who received Title IV aid disbursements and subsequently drop/withdraw. If the institution is required to return Title IV funds, the student will be required to pay for the institutional charges originally paid by the aid returned. Please visit the Return to Title IV policy at financialaid.okstate.edu/policies/R2T4.

Repayment Policy

Financial aid is considered to be used first for direct educational costs (tuition and fees) and, if the student is in University housing, for room and board. If a student financial aid recipient withdraws and is eligible for a refund of tuition and fees and/or room and board, all or part of this refund will be used to reimburse Title IV federal financial aid program(s); state programs which apply to tuition (i.e. OKPromise); or institutional tuition and fee waiver programs.

If a student receives Title IV federal aid in excess of institutional charges and subsequently withdraws, he/she may be required to return a portion of the aid. The student is ineligible for further aid until the required repayment has been made. The aid is returned on the student’s behalf and a charge is placed on the student Bursar account for the repayment. For additional information, please visit the Return to Title IV policy at financialaid.okstate.edu/policies/R2T4.

Refund Policy for Students Entering Military Service

If a student is called to active military service during the term in which he or she is enrolled and has not completed sufficient work for receiving grades, the University will waive tuition and fees for that term. The student should submit a withdrawal form to the Office of the Registrar. Once the student has withdrawn and submitted a copy of the military orders, the student will receive a 100% waiver of the tuition and fees or a 100% refund of tuition and fees paid. The military orders, if not available at the time of withdrawal, may be submitted at a later date at which time the waiver will be applied.

University Dining Services

University Dining Services (UDS) currently offers more than 30 unique dining options on the OSU campus. National franchises to local favorites, heallthy to indulgent – the options are endless! UDS goes to great lengths to ensure even the hungriest or most selective Cowboys have plenty of dining choices. Whether you want an early morning coffee and breakfast or need a late-night snack to get you through a study session, there’s something for everyone.

Being a part of “America’s Healthiest Campus”, means there are always well-balanced, nutritious options for our customers. Our “Choose Orange” food labeling program encourages students to choose healthier options while dining on campus by easily identifying better-for-you choices without having to read a nutrition label.  The program is based on the U.S. Dietary Guidelines and qualified items are identified by the “Choose Orange” icon.

All freshmen living on campus are required to have at least the Bronze level Meal Plan. Meal plans are accepted at any of our 30+ dining options on campus as well as at Gallagher-Iba Arena and Boone Pickens Stadium!

How our Meal Plans Work

Campus meal plans are available to anyone – on or off-campus students and residents, as well as any staff or faculty!

Each of our 5 meal plan options on campus work just like a debit card – just pick your plan, it will be loaded to your Student ID, then you swipe to pay and start enjoying all the great food on campus! Your meal plan is valid anywhere you can eat or drink on campus, including the stadium. Each item on campus has a dollar value associated with it and you are only charged that specific amount each time you use your meal plan to dine on campus – no “blocks,” “meals,” or limits!

Didn’t use your full meal plan this semester? No worries! Each meal plan has a “rollover” amount that will stay with you from semester-to-semester as long as you maintain a valid meal plan contract. To learn more about everything UDS has to offer, please visit dining.okstate.edu
