High School Plus One

Complete Your First Year of College While in High School.

The High School Plus One Program allows high school junior and senior students to get started down the path to a career while in high school. With this program, you can earn up to 30 hours of university transfer college credit or credits toward a TCC associate degree, a Workforce Development certificate or degree while still high school. After graduation, you will finish your degree at Tulsa Community College in about one year.

College Admission and Enrollment Steps

If you have already applied to TCC and have been admitted you are ready to enroll in classes.

One-time College Admission

Step 1. Go to your high school

  • Ask for your “unofficial” high school transcript (electronic version) and your schedule availability to attend college courses (days/times)
  • Check your eligibility
  • Ask your counselor or dualcredit@tulsacc.edu for the list of reserved courses for high school students

Step 2. Gather documents

  • Locate your social security number
  • Save your “unofficial” high school transcript as a PDF on your computer
  • Save any test score sheets (ACT, SAT, PSAT10, PSAT-NMSQ or pre-ACT) as a PDF on your computer

Step 3. Complete the TCC online college admission application

  • Upload your high school transcript and any test score sheets into the online admission form.
  • Declare a major (if you are unsure, begin with Liberal Arts/General Education. You can always change this later).
  • Provide an email address that you check often. TCC will contact you at this address with next steps.
  • If you are notified that you do not meet admission eligibility, you may take an on-campus/residual ACT once you receive your T#.
  • If you are notified that you are admitted, you may now check enrollment eligibility.
