Tuition & Fees

The required fees and nonresident tuition for Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology are established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Fees do not include the costs of individual textbooks, tool kits, uniforms, or other materials which vary according to the student’s program of study.

Students who enroll in programs of study that require individual tool kits, uniforms or other materials will obtain these items as specified by the department. In most cases these items can be purchased through the institution.

The costs will vary from program to program and are subject to change without notice. Incidental and personal expenses for items such as clothing and entertainment will vary with the individual student.
