Start your career with TCC dual credit admission and enrollment.

College Admission Requirements

All students must be juniors or seniors (junior status begins in the summer semester after the 10th grade) and be eligible to graduate from high school in the spring of their senior year to meet the criterion. Students who attend unaccredited high schools and home schools must have completed enough high school coursework to be equivalent to an individual who is classified as a junior or senior at an accredited high school. Students not qualified by grade level may be considered for opportunity admissions.

A detailed explanation of the OSRHE policy on dual credit is available in the OSRHE Policy and Procedures Manual - Section 3.10. College admission does not guarantee eligibility for course placement.

Required Scores For Admission

To be admitted to the college, high school students from both accredited and unaccredited high schools will submit transcripts and /or national test scores sheets that meet or exceed the minimum score on at least one of the following eligible tests or an unweighted high school GPA.

Eligible Tests (choose at least one) Minimum Score
National ACT 19 composite
Pre-ACT 19 composite
On-campus ACT1 19 composite
SAT 990 composite
PSAT 10/NMSQ 990 composite
High School GPA 3.0 unweighted

1 The National ACT or SAT can be repeated without consequence. One on-campus ACT per year (from November 1 to October 31) is valid for concurrently enrolled high school students’ admission and course placement.

Next Step for Ineligible Students

On-campus ACT testing is available to students who test below the minimum score for admission.

Required Admission Documents

  • Online application for admission2 (all students)
  • Current high school transcript (all students)
  • Documentation of test scores (optional if applying under GPA option for accredited high schools)

2 Receipt of student ID number is the first step in the admission process. Admission is completed when the high school transcript is vetted and all criteria met.

College Enrollment Requirements

At minimum, all students shall demonstrate college readiness in a subject area to be eligible to enroll in a college level course in the corresponding subject area. All students must meet the criterion for enrollment. Any student who is unable to demonstrate college readiness in reading will not be permitted enrollment in college level courses. Students are prohibited from auditing courses or enrolling in physical education courses as well as any form of developmental education, including any configuration in which developmental education is embedded within a credit bearing course (i.e.. Corequisite courses).

Workload: Combined enrollment may not exceed 19 credit hours per long semester or 9 credit hours in the summer. Each high school course (1/2 unit) listed on the semester high school schedule is counted as 3 credit hours of load—non-academic units excluded.

Enrollment must be completed and delivered to TCC each semester. Students may list multiple choices for course enrollment in the fillable word document online at tulsacc.edu. Enrollment staff will process in the order of courses listed.

Re-enrollment is contingent upon the student maintaining a college GPA of 2.0 or higher in all college courses. Submission of form does not guarantee enrollment. Students may check MyTCC for semester enrollment.
