TCC & Langston-Tulsa broaden partnership by signing agreement
Tulsa Community College and Langston-Tulsa pledged today to renew the partnership between the two colleges to help strengthen the transfer path for students from TCC to Langston. The agreement allows TCC graduates with an associate degree to move seamlessly into a four-year degree at Langston-Tulsa and applies to six of the most popular programs.

This agreement also allows a student after completing a four-year degree at Langton-Tulsa to gain an associate degree from TCC in what is called a reverse transfer. The partnership is part of TCC’s and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin’s commitment to increase the number of Oklahomans with college degrees under the Complete College America initiative.
“This is an opportunity to renew a long standing partnership we’ve have had with Langston-Tulsa,” said Kevin Clayton, Dean of University Transfer and Workforce Programs at TCC. “This goes to our mission as a community college where a student can complete a two-year associate degree and move into a four-year degree by providing as many transfer opportunities as possible.”
Clayton says the signed agreement broadens the partnership between the two colleges and expands existing partnership to strengthen student retention and advisement activities.
“Today we recognize the importance of three words: enrollment, retention and graduation rates,” said Dr. Clyde Montgomery, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Langston-Tulsa. “This is the beginning of something good for both institutions. It ensures we have a great partnership.”
