At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 2 year associate degree at OKCCC is $34,914 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 2 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school.
