Show me affordability

Mizzou OT has also eliminated out-of-state tuition fees for non-Missouri residents. All students now pay the same in-state tuition rate. This means tuition for your entire OTD degree is more than 25% less than the average cost of our competitors in the region, in some cases 50% less.
