How Much Does College Cost?

OSU-Cascades tuition and fees are estimated at $11,715 (Oregon resident, 2019-2020). Additional expenses may include room and board, books and supplies, personal items, and transportation. Use the Net Price Calculator to estimate the cost of education for a first time, full-time freshman student.
