Scholarship Included…

We don’t believe costs should get in the way of a high-quality private university education. For our traditional undergraduate program, students graduating from high school compete for generous merit and need-based institutional grants and scholarships. But how do adults compete when they graduated 5, 10, even 30 years ago? For adult education, the traditional model doesn’t work.

To help make the cost of returning to school more affordable, we have built-in a scholarship for adult students covering over 60% of the standard undergraduate tuition rates. That’s a discount of $3,000 per course. Enroll full-time and you’re getting the equivalent of an $18,000 scholarship per year. You may also qualify for state and federal financial aid, as well as loans and payment plans.

Payment Options

Oglethorpe offers multiple ways to pay, including convenient payment plans. Visit the business office for more information and payment deadlines. Any refunds of tuition paid are subject to the policies outlined in the Oglethorpe University Bulletin.

Employer Reimbursement

Arrangements can be made for those students whose employers pay all or part of their tuition & fees.

Upon registration, the student must submit paperwork to the business office from the employer verifying the reimbursement. The student is required to pay a 25% down payment plus a $25 administration fee when submitting the paperwork. The balance is due no later than 30 days after the end of the semester being reimbursed. If the balance is not paid within this timeframe, the student will be assessed late fees and will not be permitted to register for future semesters.
