Oklahoma Christian University holds tuition steady for second year

Last year's freeze on undergraduate tuition at Oklahoma Christian University may have helped draw revenue in other areas, and university officials hope a similar move this year will have the same effect.

Although the university didn't see any increased revenue from tuition increases, deSteiguer said revenue was up due to the enrollment hike and the tuition dollars that came along with it.

He wouldn't make any definite predictions about what the university's financial situation would be next year, but deSteiguer said he expects another year of strong enrollment. That opens up the possibility of a third year without a tuition increase, he said.

“We would love to be able to do that,” he said.

Aislyn Reaves, a former OC student, said she's watching the university's tuition freeze closely. Reaves attended the university for two years, then transferred to Collin College, a community college with campuses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The cost of attending OC was a major factor in her decision to leave, Reaves said. Reaves, 21, said she enjoyed her time at the university and would like to come back. If tuition remains more stable, she said, it might be easier to manage.

“It's definitely more of a possibility,” she said.
