How to Apply to Tulsa Achieves
Only 2020 high school seniors residing in Tulsa County are eligible to apply.
Tulsa County High School seniors must follow this step-by-step process in order to receive the Tulsa Achieves scholarship. We recommend that you start the process in early October to allow time to complete each step.
Step 1: Complete a TCC Web Application for Admission
*If you have already applied to TCC as a concurrent high school student, skip this step.
To complete an application for admission, you must first set up an admissions account. If you already have a My TCC user account, login then complete the application.
You must provide a valid email address. All communication during the application period from Tulsa Achieves will be sent to this email address.
Step 2: Submit the FAFSA
The FAFSA should be completed as early as possible. The FAFSA now opens October 1st for the following Academic Year and uses prior year tax information, eliminating any reasons to wait. You should elect to use the IRS Data Retrieval tool within the FAFSA for fastest and easiest processing.
When prompted, enter the TCC School Code: 009763
Once finished, "sign" the form using your electronic PIN number.

Step 4: Submit ACT or ACCUPLACER score
ACT scores should be emailed or submitted in person to any campus Enrollment Services office (ACT scores are only used for placement; there is no "minimum" score a student must achieve to be admitted to TCC or Tulsa Achieves), or visit a TCC campus and complete the ACCUPLACER Test. The ACCUPLACER Test is offered free of charge at all TCC campuses, and may be used in place of, or in combination with ACT scores. No appointment is needed for the ACCUPLACER, students simply visit a campus with a photo ID and obtain a referral to take the test.
College placement test scores are required to enroll. Please bring a copy of your scores with you to the TA First Class session.
Step 5: Sign up for New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is mandatory for all new Tulsa Achieves students. Orientation is intended to help you become members of our college community.
At the Orientation, you receive important information about academic policies and the course registration process.
New Student Orientation is for students only. Parent sessions will be held separately and dates will be posted.
