From the Institution

College of the Ozarks, also known as Hard Work U., is a liberal arts college, founded more than a century ago with deep roots in the Christian tradition. The College seeks students who are of good character, bright, willing to work, and would have a difficult time paying to attend another college. The five pillars of the College are to encourage academic, Christian, patriotic, cultural, and vocational growth in its students. The College provides a Tuition Assurance Scholarship for all students, and as a result, students pay no cash for tuition. Annual tuition is $19,800. The College guarantees to meet all of this cost for each full-time student by using earnings from its endowment, operating its own required student Work Education Program, accepting student aid grants, gifts, and other sources. Each full-time student's tuition is met 100% by participating in the Work Education Program and the Tuition Assurance Scholarship, comprised of private, institutional, and federal/state student aid - but without loans of any kind. Debt is openly discouraged.
