FREE Tuition for Qualifying First-Time Students

Ike's Promise is a scholarship that covers the balance of your tuition after other scholarship and grant offers have been applied.

A private college offers students small class sizes where you are known by name and you participate in learning that other schools just can’t offer. Experience elevates the value of your degree! At OC you can touch cadavers, build a car or airplane, invest in a portfolio, produce a movie, perform at Steinway Hall and start a business -- advantages we want to make available to all students.
