College of the Ozarks is located in Point Lookout, Missouri and founded in the Presbyterian tradition. Committed to academic excellence and Christian principles, College of the Ozarks has become a reputable institution of higher learning.
College of the Ozarks is a particularly unique university: called “Hard Work U” by The Wall Street Journal, students are not charged tuition, but instead work on campus every semester to earn their education. College of the Ozarks discourages all full-time students from incurring debt, which is why it does not participate in any government loan programs.
Though College of the Ozarks prides itself on its unique characteristics, it still offers most traditional concentrations for a bachelor’s degree, including pre-professional programs. Pre-professional programs help students earn prerequisites for graduate programs in their field, such as law, medicine, engineering, and pharmacy. College of the Ozarks also offers teaching credential programs for those looking to teach elementary, middle school and high school levels.
Faculty and staff are dedicated to the college’s mission of academic, Christian, cultural, vocational and patriotic growth. College of the Ozarks hopes to provide opportunities for talented students who would not afford a college education otherwise.
100% of students gave College of the Ozarks 3 stars overall.
This college has an amazing concept: work for you tution. However, they abuse the power that paying students' tuition gives them. Many things about the school are done very well, but some things are a bit over done. I love that there is a Christian focus and many of the rules are practical and helpful, but on the other hand, many of them are somewhat outrageous.
