Recruitment and Compensation
Tulsa Community College does not, and has never, conducted fraudulent or aggressive recruiting on or off military installations or in any other venue, nor do we misrepresent ourselves, our programs, or our mission. We do not pay incentive compensation to anyone for recruiting actions. We meet all state authorization requirements and perform yearly program auditing conducted by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education | About the State System of Higher Education | State Authorization (okhighered.org).
Return of Unearned Tuition Assistance Funds
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded.
To comply with the Department of Defense policy, Tulsa Community College will return any unearned TA funds on a prorated basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. These funds are returned to the military service branch.
Instances when a service member stops attending due to a military service obligation, Tulsa Community College will work with the affected Service Member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.
