Tuition at Otterbein

Third Year in a Row, Otterbein University Announces No Increase in Tuition

“A freeze on tuition, coupled with our generous financial aid packages, will help many families pay less to attend Otterbein while still receiving the same quality and nationally-recognized programs and degrees.” said Jefferson Blackburn-Smith, vice president for enrollment management. “Private schools can be just as affordable as public schools once all the factors are taken into account such as tuition, merit aid, scholarships and financial aid offerings. Our goal is to be accessible and affordable for families.”

How Much Does It Cost to Attend Otterbein?

99% of Otterbein freshmen receive some form of merit and/or need-based aid.

Are There Other Student Fees Not Reflected in the Total Above?

There are no hidden student fees. You have access to the recreation center, fitness classes, tickets for home athletics events and all arts events, student organizations, the health center, washers and dryers and printer in computer labs, among other thing, at no additional charge.

You will, however, have to cover costs for your participation in travel courses, or study abroad programs. And some specialized offerings, like private music lessons and art, equine and nursing courses, do have additional costs. (Those additional charges are noted in the schedule of classes and the course catalog.)
