Paying for College
Incoming freshman and transfer students can use this scholarship search to determine which Oakland University scholarship awards they may qualify for.*
You can also download the 2015 Scholarships and Financial Aid booklet for all the same award information, plus legacy scholarships and need-based aid.
Note that there is no separate application for OU merit scholarships, but some awards (such as the Alumni Legacy Award, major-specific scholarships, OU-Macomb scholarships and international student scholarships) do require an additional application process.
*The scholarship search tool is intended as a guide. Some exclusions may apply.
The average annual cost for undergraduate students in the 2013-14 academic year is $11,460 (based on 30 credit hours).
When it comes to the total cost to attend college, Oakland University remains a bargain compared to Michigan's other public research universities, partly because Oakland is the only school that has no fees (no registration fee, recreation fee, health fee, course fee, program fee, technology fee, etc.)
To keep education costs easy to understand and affordable, OU students simply pay tuition. ( Students living in on-campus housing will incur room and meal plan charges when applicable.) Oakland offers the sixth lowest all-in cost to students for the 2014-15 academic year. The total cost to attend, in fact, is about 28 percent less than the state's highest all-in price and $728 less than the average.
