College of the Ozarks is a private Christian liberal arts college located in Point Lookout, Mo. The college has an enrollment of about 1,500.
C of O, as it is known, is a tuition-free college for full-time students. The school boasts that all full-time students defray the cost of education by working campus jobs. In fact, the College "openly discourages debt by not participating in any federal, state, or private loan programs and leads by example through having no institutional debt of any kind," it says on its Web site. (Students can receive federal and state grants.)
Through its Work College status, students are required to work 15 hours a week at an on-campus work station and two 40-hour work weeks during the academic year. The school provides a summer work program to cover the cost of room and board.
