Tulsa Achieves Answers How You Will Pay for College

July 25, 2016
There is still time to apply for Tulsa Community College’s Tulsa Achieves program that pays tuition and fees for 2016 high school graduates who live in Tulsa County. Tulsa Achieves answers the question of how you will pay for college.

The gap-funded program benefits students who live in Tulsa County, graduated from a high school (public, private or homeschool) with a 2.0 or higher grade point average, and students must attend TCC in the fall semester following high school graduation.

Students are urged to complete the Tulsa Achieves application process as soon as possible. The steps include completing a TCC web application for admission, submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), completing a Tulsa Achieves agreement form, signing up and attending for New Student Orientation, and submitting ACT scores and final high school transcript.

There are two changes for fall 2016 that impact all incoming students. New Student Orientation is mandatory for all new incoming college students regardless of age. Students must sign-up and attend a New Student Orientation before enrolling in fall classes. For Tulsa Achieves students, the New Student Orientation replaces the mandatory First Class session.

Secondly, students must be enrolled in a class prior to the class starting. No late enrollment will be allowed once the class has met. Online enrollment is cut-off at midnight on the Sunday, August 21 for 16-week classes that begin Monday, August 22.

To help students prepare for the upcoming semester, TCC will have extended hours and will host Enrollment Day, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, August 6. Academic advising, bursar, campus store, enrollment, financial aid, and testing will be open as well as New Student Orientation sessions on all four campuses.
