Will you cover difference between tuition minus GI Bill and cost of in state "state" school tuition? Or do you want to keep it to in-state residents?

College of the Ozarks is a conservative, Christian institution and strives to provide a Christian and moral environment for its students. The mission of the College is to provide educational opportunities to students who are worthy, but lack the financial resources to pay for a private, Christian education. The vision of the institution is to develop citizens of Christ-like character who are well-educated, hard-working, and patriotic.
As such, the College has behavioral expectations outlined clearly in its student handbook, available at http://images.cofo.edu/cofo/handbook.pdf. For example, the use of alcohol and drugs is not tolerated. Additionally, because the College is training students to become professionals, extreme styles of clothing/hairstyles/jewelry, (i.e., facial piercings for all, and ear piercing for males) are not permitted. Tattoos may not be visible at any time. See the student handbook for all policies.
Because generous donors provide funding to make this zero-debt, Hard Work U tuition program possible, the College is intentional about the behavioral policies it sets forth, and is serious about enforcing them.
