Bank Statement

A certified bank statement dated within six months of the start of classes showing the equivalent of $21,474.00  is required to demonstrate the studentís ability to afford one full year of living and educational expenses in the Springfield, Missouri area (see table below). This is the estimated one year cost for tuition, books, fees, housing and living expenses. To simplify transactions, we recommend prospective students establish a local account with a branch of any of the national or international banks in the Springfield area.

A deposit of $6,954 applied toward the studentís first year of tuition and fees is required.  A deposit of $3,477  applied toward the studentís first semester needs to be made for all international students transferring from another college or university in the U.S. with over 12 credit hours completed is required. If admittance is denied, the full amount will be refunded. The deposit may be paid by check drawn on U.S. funds made payable to Ozarks Technical Community College or by credit card by contacting the IPO Director.
