We have a Legacy program that allows you to lock in your tuition before it increases in the Fall of 2017.  To do that you have to be enrolled no later than Summer Term II which starts July 3rd.  Your tuition remains locked in as long as you remain active in the MBA program by taking one class per semester. 


Textbook costs vary with each class, but average $2,100 per year if only new and no used textbooks are purchased from the campus bookstore. If used books are purchased from the campus bookstore, your cost will be around $1,600. You also have the option of renting most textbooks from the OC bookstore. Please contact the store for pricing and rental agreement details.


The only fee associated with OC’s graduate business programs is the $25 application fee. Please read OC’s Financial Policy for Graduate Students here.

International Student Deposit

A $1,500 deposit is required for all international students. To confirm your intent to enroll at Oklahoma Christian University, a refundable enrollment deposit of $1,500 is required. This deposit saves your place in OC's incoming class by allowing you to enroll in classes. Your enrollment deposit will be applied as a credit to help offset the cost of your first semester’s tuition cost.   

Financial Aid

To apply for federal financial aid, students should follow these steps:

  1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once the FAFSA has been submitted, your information will be forwarded to the Office of Financial Services at Oklahoma Christian University.
  2. After all of your paperwork is complete, the Office of Financial Services will determine your eligibility for financial aid. An award letter will be sent to your OC email. 
  3. If you are a first-time borrower at Oklahoma Christian University, you will also need to complete the Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note for the unsubsidized Direct Loan at
  4. Please check your OC email periodically for any updates or changes to your financial aid.

Financial Services Policy

All charges are applied to accounts at enrollment. Payment is due when classes begin for that student in any semester. While there is a four-week period before accounts are considered past due, payment is due on the first day classes begin for a student.

Employer Reimbursement

Students wishing to delay payment based on an employer reimbursement financial arrangement must first submit the Employer Reimbursement Form. Failure to complete the Employer Reimbursement Form by the first day of classes will result in your account being considered delinquent and therefore subjected to finance charges and possible withdrawal from classes.

Payment may be made through the Student’s Account Online via cash, e-check, or credit card (excluding Visa). Student loans are also available for those who qualify. OC’s Office of Student Financial Services is available to assist in the application process. It is recommended that students start this process as early as possible. Please note that half-time enrollment (a minimum of five hours) is required in graduate school to be eligible for loans. Also, monthly payment plans are available to graduate students as for undergraduate students.
