Olivet Nazarene University is pleased to provide this net price calculator as a guide to assist in early financial planning for college. This calculator will provide a preliminary estimate of federal, state and institutional aid eligibility, to help families gauge what aid the student may be awarded and to make arrangements to cover the cost of attendance.
Future costs and financial aid estimates are subject to change. Results of the calculator are not guaranteed and special circumstances are reviewed by the Financial Aid Office. The accuracy of your estimated awards is based on the information you provide. The estimated awards are based on the assumption that the student will complete the FAFSA.

Olivet Nazarene University is an active participant in the new Yellow Ribbon GI Enhancement Program, designed to improve financial aid for veterans participating in the new Post-9/11 GI Bill Program. The Post 9/11 GI Bill covers veterans’ tuition up to the amount equal to the highest in-state, public school, undergraduate tuition. The Yellow Ribbon Program will cover additional tuition costs not covered by that bill.
Olivet has voluntarily chosen to provide funds in the amount of 50 percent of the excess tuition — up to $25,000 per student per year — with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs matching the contribution to cover the remaining tuition and fees. The funds are available to traditional undergraduate students, as well as students enrolling in programs within the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies, including the University’s doctoral program.
Those who have served at least 36 months of active duty after September 10, 2001, may be eligible for the program. For more information about the program, or to apply for the program, visit the Department of Veterans Affairs Web site at benefits.va.gov/gibill/.
