Committed to Mission

College of the Ozarks is committed to its founding mission of providing a quality, Christian education to those who are found worthy, but who are without sufficient means to obtain such training. All full-time students work campus jobs to defray the tuition. Upon participation in the Work Education Program, the College guarantees to meet the entire tuition for students, allowing them the opportunity to graduate debt free. The College openly discourages debt by not participating in any federal, state, or private loan programs and leads by example through having no institutional debt of any kind.  Learn more about our approach.

It’s donors like you that enable us to fulfill our vision – to develop citizens of Christlike character who are well-educated, hardworking, and patriotic. College of the Ozarks relies heavily on college donations and charitable support to meet its annual budget.
