TCC Hosts BluePrint: A Day to Learn about Tulsa Achieves

February 20, 2017
Tulsa Community College saw its largest Tulsa Achieves cohort in fall 2016 with 1,864 students starting college immediately following high school graduation. Tulsa Achieves, started in 2007, allows Tulsa County residents the option to earn an associate degree without going into debt. Since the program’s inception, 15,847 students attend TCC as Tulsa Achieves students.

To help high school seniors get prepared for college, TCC hosts BluePrint Saturday, Feb. 25 at TCC Northeast Campus located at Harvard and Apache. The event, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., is designed to answer questions about how Tulsa Achieves works and get students started with the Tulsa Achieves application process and paperwork.

Tulsa Achieves pays full tuition and fees for qualified high school graduates by covering the gap between available state and federal aid and the full cost of tuition and fees. To be accepted into the Tulsa Achieves program, the student must be a high school graduate living in Tulsa County with a 2.0 or higher grade point average. Students from public, private and homeschool are eligible. Tulsa Achieves students are required to complete the Free Application for Financial Student Aid or FAFSA and perform 40 volunteer hours for the academic year.

BluePrint offers breakout sessions for students and parents. Plus, students will be able to learn about the academic program offered at TCC.
