Hannah Morris, a political science and public relations junior at OU, took an online class at Rose State College in addition to her course load at OU. Some OU students choose to take online classes at junior colleges, not to save money, but because they believe it will be easier. “Classes at junior colleges are less rigorous and more financially feasible,” Morris said. When a student enrolls in an online class at junior colleges Rose State College in Midwest City or Oklahoma City Community College, a fixed fee of $12 is added to the cost of tuition. This fee is added to cover the expenses the college takes on when offering classes taught in this manner. At Rose State, the cost per credit hour is $69, at OCCC it is $65. So, even with the $12 increase the cost of taking an online class is still fairly low. At OU however, in-state tuition is $117 per credit hour and out-of-state tuition is $236 per credit hour. This is the general cost of tuition at OU, and the fees can also be quite expensive.
