ORU has developed a tiered tuition pricing structure for 100% online programs that is reflective of each nation's gross national income per capita. This pricing can be applied to all international students who meet the criteria.

US students are automatically placed into an approved category and do not need to meet any additional criteria.

To qualify for a specific country rate you must meet these criteria:

  • Study a 100% online program
  • Be a native of the country who is living in that country (Haitian person living/working in Haiti)
    • Demonstrate through proof of citizenship and address


  • International person (non US citizen) holding a work visa or dependent visa for another country (in such a case, they would qualify for pricing for the country in which they are working/living fulltime).
    • Enrollment with tiered rate permitted so long as visa is current.
    • Proof of current visa required by end of drop/add period.

Who Does Not Qualify:

  • US Citizens
  • Permanent Residents of the US
  • Tourist visa holders

Once you receive your FSA ID, you will need to complete the FAFSA at Once we receive the FAFSA, the student is budgeted according to the exact number of credit hours for which they are charged. Their financial aid package is built upon the budget.

Once aid is offered, students should log onto their Vision account to accept awards. Please refer to to complete this process. Students will access vision using using their Z-number and six digit birth date. Each student will need to agree to the "Terms and Conditions" of Vision before they can accept their offer.
