Cost & Financial Aid

At Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology, making quality education affordable and accessible is our priority. We firmly believe that tuition should not hinder students from pursuing academic and career success. In support of that goal, we not only offer low tuition to our students but also provide extensive financial aid opportunities to help them pay for college.

We understand that each student’s situation is unique; that's why our dedicated financial aid team works diligently to guide you and your family through the process of applying for financial aid.

Cost of Attendance

Named a Top Affordable School in Oklahoma, OSU Institute of Technology offers one of the highest quality technical educations in the region at an extremely affordable price.

The Estimated Cost Per Trimester at OSUIT is $6,702.75

  • Estimates $2,886.75 in tuition & fees at $192.45 per credit hour
  • Estimates $3,216 in room & board
  • Estimates $600 for books & supplies

The estimated cost per trimester is for a full-time student with 15 credit hours at OSUIT and the figures include tuition, fees, room and board, textbooks, and supplies. The actual cost of attendance may vary depending on one’s situation. Additional fees and materials may be charged or required depending on the course or program. See a complete list of fees and a detailed breakdown of student housing rates and meal plans

To better assist you in calculating your cost of attending OSUIT, we offer a cost calculator for you to estimate your cost per trimester after estimated grant and scholarship aid.

Emergency Aid Funding

Emergency Aid Funding is designed to support Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology (OSUIT) students who need 15 or less credit hours to graduate. The program uses funds from within the institution and does not impact a recipient’s ability to qualify for other financial aid.

Funding awards are first-come, first-serve, with the goal of helping the greatest number of eligible applicants as possible. Funding applications are accepted throughout the semester. Awarded funds are applied to a student’s Bursar account to ensure they can enroll for the following term. Emergency Aid Funds may not cover a student's entire outstanding Bursar balance.

Aiming to assist our students in affording their education, OSUIT offers various types of scholarships. Effective Fall 2019, all students classified as domestic out-of-state are eligible for a full waiver of out-of-state fees scholarship. The approximate value of the scholarship is $2,855. 

Out-of-state students taking 12 or more hours are required to live in the dorms for the duration of their college program(s) unless they meet one of the exceptions listed below at the time the admissions application is submitted:

  • are 21 or older
  • are married
  • have a child
  • are enrolled in 12 or more hours of online classes

The out-of-state scholarship will be revoked if the student does not meet one of the exceptions or the student moves off campus before the completion of the degree(s).In-state students, students in foster care, and national guard officers are also eligible for the Tuition Waivers Scholarships which can cover a portion of the tuition charges. In addition to the Tuition Waivers, many other scholarships are available such as OSUIT Foundation Scholarships and Oklahoma's Promise. Learn more about your scholarship options.
