High School Student Tuition Waiver Policy and Procedure

Tuition Waiver Policy

Terms and Conditions

Seniors: By Oklahoma statute, each Oklahoma high school senior who meets the eligibility requirements for enrollment shall be entitled to receive a tuition waiver equivalent to the amount of resident tuition for a maximum of eighteen (18) credit hours in their senior year. The senior year begins June 1 following the 11th grade, so the tuition waiver may be used in the summer, fall, or spring of the senior year.

Juniors: In addition to the state of Oklahoma’s senior tuition waiver, Tulsa Community College provides a tuition waiver to each Oklahoma high school junior who meets the admission and enrollment eligibility requirements for high school students. Juniors will be awarded a tuition waiver equivalent to the amount of resident tuition for a maximum of twelve credit hours during the 11th grade. We recommend that juniors use six hours in the fall and six in the spring semester. Check with your high school counselor for scheduling considerations. The student must follow the policy regulations including being on track to graduate from high school in the spring of their senior year.

Tuition waivers are awarded for all enrollments unless students drop a class within the college drop period. All hours waived will be counted in the total tuition waiver limits including any grade entered on the transcript: W, AW, I, WN, or A – F grades.

Please take a few minutes right now to confirm that you are enrolled in classes by logging into MyTCC and clicking on the “My Account” link at the top of the page. You are responsible for all college business, including enrollment and payment.

TCC Financial Aid awards Attend College Early (ACE) tuition waivers after TCC enrollment services has confirmed eligibility and processed your enrollment. The waivers are disbursed after the college drop period for your course, and your bursar balance should reflect the disbursement by week eight of the long semesters.

To pay course fees and any tuition amount over the waiver limit, you may access the student bursar account information on the MYTCC “my account” page and pay by check or credit card. Additionally, you may pay by cash, check, or credit card to any TCC bursar. Be sure to bring your photo ID.
