“I realized I can’t do it alone”

At OCC, we believe education works best in community. You'll learn in your virtual community, your on-campus community, and your personal mentor relationships.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who will teach my class?

    Just like in our undergraduate program, Ozark’s master’s program faculty set us apart. You’ll learn from practitioner professors—men and women with hands-on experience in their fields—in a distinctively Christ-centered community.

  • How much is tuition?

    Each graduate credit hour at OCC is $490 plus fees.

  • Are there scholarships available for graduate students?

    Yes! You can find all of our scholarship information here. And fill out your FAFSA with Ozark's code, 015569.

  • Is OCC accredited?

    Yes, Ozark Christian College holds dual accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and with the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE).

  • Is the master’s program online?

    Yes, the Master of Arts in Christian Ministry can be a fully online, 30-hour degree. Or, choose from three 36-hour concentrations with required on-campus intensives.

    In the three 36-hour concentrations, a majority of your coursework will be online.

    · 80% of your coursework is personal study on your own schedule (research, writing, online discussion posts, etc.).

    · 20% of your coursework is community interaction on a pre-arranged schedule (Zoom, in-person intensives, virtual seats, etc.).

Students, the faculty, and the Academics Office all play a role in ensuring that reasonable and appropriate accommodations are provided in a timely and effective manner.
