Money Matters

Oak Valley College does not offer student loans.  Why?

College is about pushing you forward, not holding you back with a mountain of debt. 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that college costs have increased 227% in the last 20 years.

At Oak Valley College, we are not spending millions on luxury buildings for students.  Buildings do little to improve learning outcomes - teaching does.

Before we go further, know that you will automatically receive a $6,480 per semester scholarship, so the cost of tuition at Oak Valley College is reduced to $1,520 per semester.  We will even waive your $50 application fee.  

Many students opt for a monthly payment plan, which is $380 per month for students next fall plus a $50 per semester convenience fee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

our work-college program, encourages you to work half-time while attending school, so you may end up earning more than the cost of tuition and expenses.  For example:

  • John Doe earns $3,360 per semester - $10.50 per hour (minimum wage) x 20 hours per week over 16 weeks.  John pays $1,520 in tuition and $400 for books and supplies.  After taxes, this leaves John with more than $1,000 for expenses.*
  • Jane Doe earns $2,880 per semester - $12 per hour x 15 hours per week over 16 weeks.  Jane pays $1,520 in tuition and $400 for books and supplies.  After tax, Jane has more than $500 for expenses.*
