Our Students don't pay tuition, they work for it

College of the Ozarks provides a hands on vocational experience that allows students to work for their education full-time. Students work fifteen hours per week to cover a portion of their education. The remainder is underwritten through grants and scholarships, which are made available through donations. No student at College of the Ozarks will ever pay for tuition.
