Debt-free vs. the other options

According to The College Board, last year, the cost of attending private colleges averaged $43,921 and public universities were $19,548.  We know it may not sound real, but Oak Valley College tuition, FOR EARNING YOUR DEGREE, is around $10,000.  That is not a misprint.  We are able to offer affordable tuition by not paying high costs to sustain a campus, expensive athletic programs, or high administrative salaries.

Two facts

There are two facts that we frequently get challenged about.  First is our cost.  Yes, it is true that the cost for Oak Valley College is $75 per unit.  There are almost no strings attached.  The first string is you have to apply, and the application deadline is July 1.

Application deadline

June 1 is our application deadline.  Apply now.  The application is free.  If you apply by June 1, you are guaranteed consideration for the fall, which starts September 5.  Again, at $75 per unit, $10,000 for the entire degree, Oak Valley College is the most affordable way to earn a bachelor's degree (that we know of).  

Career Development

Gregg Simmons, our Career Development Director, served as Director of Athlete and Education Services for the US Olympic Committee (USOC).  Gregg comes to OVC with more than 20 years of service in career development, most of those years serving colleges and university students.

The DISCOUNT

We put it in ALL CAPS because it is real.  Most people are drawn to it - the $6,800 per semester scholarship (reducing tuition to $75 per unit).  It is there for a reason. We are here to serve. You will not find many other schools offering anything like it, because, frankly, other schools are not Oak Valley College.

Applied learning is about putting into practice what you learn.  We say it frequently, and we mean it, at Oak Valley College you learn it today...apply it tomorrow.  In a typical class, you will discuss best practices in the classroom and then put those lessons into practice in the workplace.
