This is an estimate of the total cost to attend OSU. This estimate includes tuition and fees, books and supplies as well as living costs such as housing, food, personal and miscellaneous expenses. Award amounts offered reflect a three-term, full-time cost of attendance. (These are estimated costs only and subject to change based on factors such as dining plan chosen, actual credits taken, etc.) The actual charges you can expect to see billed to the student account by OSU will only be tuition and fees and room and board (if applicable) on a per term basis. The standard cost of attendance may be adjusted for differential tuition for specific programs, and for students participating in approved study abroad programs.

Please Note: Cost of Attendance figures are used for budgeting purposes only and represent an estimate of projected tuition and fees for the coming academic year. Actual tuition rates are approved by the state legislature in July and may vary.
