Your campus job helps pay for the Tuition Assurance* at College of the Ozarks. Combined with scholarships and grants, your work scholarship will cover the Tuition Assurance, making your College of the Ozarks education very affordable. The work education program means freedom from having to pay back large school loans after graduation. Best of all, the on-the-job experience you gain as a College of the Ozarks student will add extra dimension to your learning. There are many benefits to a work college - you’ll be starting your career debt free, well educated, and work experienced!
Unlike the federal "work-study" programs that most colleges offer, our work education program lets you contribute in a very significant way, both to your education and to the betterment of the C of O community. In addition to your normal weekly 15 hours during each semester, you'll work two 40 hour weeks each year chosen from the weeks when classes are not in session. Although the scholarship program is need-based, your room and board may also be covered by working six weeks per term during your summer break. Combined with other scholarships and grants, your work scholarship can cover the entire Tuition Assurance.
*Please note that Tuition Assurance is the cost to provide academic courses for students and does not include room and board, fees or books.
