Christian values and character, hard work, and financial responsibility comprise the fundamental building blocks of the "Hard Work U." experience. At a time when there is much talk about what is wrong with the nation, College of the Ozarks exemplifies what is right with America.
C of O is committed to its founding mission of providing a quality, Christian education to those who are found worthy, but who are without sufficient means to obtain such training. Instead of paying tuition, all full-time students work campus jobs to defray the cost of education. Upon complete participation in the Work Education Program, the College guarantees to meet the entire cost of education for students, allowing them the opportunity to graduate debt-free. The College openly discourages debt by not participating in any government loan programs and leads by example through having no institutional debt of any kind.

I requested information for a program I was interested in and never received a letter or any emails regarding my interest. After reading these reviews here I see why. I have a foreign last name and maybe that has something to do with it. I also found it strange that on the website it said the students who are accepted are “worthy”... what on earth does that even mean? I’m glad I changed my mind about this college.
Great place to visit and EAT! Beautiful college! I'd love to go there. Top notch!
