Oklahoma State University is committed to providing accessible and affordable higher education for our students.  Our desire is to help students shorten the time to earn their degrees and assist with financial budgeting. To aid in this effort, a block rate has been implemented that includes tuition and University-wide fees for students taking 12 to 18 credit hours. The “block” rate serves as one of OSU’s strategies to help students stay on target and finish college in 4 years.

Undergraduate students taking 12 or more hours will be charged the block rate that includes tuition and University-wide fees and should expect this charge on their student account. Special circumstances exist where a student will not be charged the block rate. For more information, please see the FAQ link. 

Beginning Fall 2016, students receiving Oklahoma's Promise will be included in the block rate. Oklahoma's Promise students who feel they meet the criteria for any of our existing block rate exemptions must submit an application using the links to the left.
