Bartlesville’s Oklahoma Wesleyan Univeristy, a liberal arts college with an enrollement of 1,030, has placed a year of tuition, room and board on eBay. Bidding for the package will start at one penny on Feb. 4 and run through Feb. 10.
One year at OWU, including room and board, currently costs about $23,000.
The auction is open to the public — current students, people who have applied to attend to the university and people who have never applied — and can be found by searching for Oklahoma Wesleyan University on eBay.com.
There is some criteria the winner of the auction will need to meet. The person bidding on the tuition does not have to be the person who comes to the university. The winner must meet admission requirements. If the winner is not accepted to the university, their bid money will not be accepted. The option is for traditional, undergraduate students to attend the fall and spring semesters of the next academic year, not exceeding 17 credit hours per semester. The winner must apply for any financial aid they are eligible for and pay what they bid. The difference beyond financial aid and the bid will be covered by OWU.

OWU has campuses throughout the state of Oklahoma and is expanding into Kansas. The school offers 39 majors and 24 minors.
