USAO receives high praise from 3 magazines



USAO’s net price was the second lowest on the list, behind Berea College, Ky.

“In 2012, 87 percent of our student body received some kind of financial aid,” Nancy  Moats, director of financial aid said. “This number, which has risen consistently over the past five years, is a reflection of the kind of student who excels at USAO – often first generation college attendees with modest family means but who are high academic achievers.”

A study done at Georgetown University shows as few as 14 percent of lower income students attend the nation's top universities, which leaves USAO in a place to benefit those in financial need.
