Concurrent Enrollment

Get a jump start on college!

Did you know that eligible high school juniors and seniors can take dual/concurrent enrollment courses at Tulsa Community College and earn high school and college credits?

Depending on their school, students may take classes at their high school campus, online, or on-campus at TCC. When you participate in concurrent enrollment with TCC, you can:

  • Earn college credit hours while meeting high school graduation requirements;
  • Build college-level writing and critical thinking skills; 
  • Have the experience of learning from college faculty members on a college campus; and
  • Start your college experience with up to 30 credit hours free of charge!*

Thanks to the support of the Assistance League of Tulsa, students enrolled in dual/concurrent enrollment classes** at TCC will not have to pay any course fees. Tulsa Public Schools funds textbook purchases and provides transportation for all dual/concurrent enrollment students. Tuition is fully funded by Regents for Higher Education and Tulsa Community College.  

*Juniors are eligible for funding for up to 12 credits hours; seniors are eligible for funding up to 18 credit hours.
**Dual/concurrent enrollment classes are listed in the 600-section of the TCC course catalog.

"Before attending TCC, I would constantly worry what the experience of college would be like, but now, thanks to concurrent enrollment, I have been able to get a head start on college and experience it before attending full-time next year.  I feel like I am ready!" 

Elexis Morin, senior, Nathan Hale High School

Assistance League Tulsa to fund Tulsa Public Schools concurrent enrollment fees in new year

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools, in partnership with Assistance League Tulsa, announces the grant funding of all course-related fees associated with concurrent enrollment at Tulsa Community College for Tulsa Public Schools high school students throughout the 2022 spring and fall semesters.

Each semester, about 100 Tulsa Public Schools students participate in concurrent enrollment at Tulsa Community College. While Tulsa Public Schools underwrites the costs associated with textbooks and materials and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education cover tuition costs, the fees associated with classes are still a barrier for many high school students.

“Every young Tulsan deserves the opportunity to pursue their dream of attending college,” said Anhna Vuong, president and CEO of the Foundation for Tulsa Schools. “We strive to make a college education more accessible and attainable, and the generosity of Assistance League Tulsa is helping us achieve that goal. This is a great example of how the public and private sector can work together to invest in our students and the future of our city and state. ”

According to a 2021 study by Jobs for the Future, students who dually enroll are more likely to finish high school and succeed in postsecondary education than their peers with a similar academic record.

“Tulsa Public Schools is committed to preparing our students for postsecondary success and helping them get a jumpstart on a college education,” said Dr. Perri Applegate, manager of post-secondary access for Tulsa Public Schools. “We serve a high-poverty student population with over 80% of our students eligible for free or reduced lunch. The scholarships provided by Assistance League Tulsa will further break down barriers to continued education for our students.”

Concurrent enrollment benefits high school students, their families and the local economy. Students enrolled in college courses while in high school experience greater access to higher education, a shorter degree path, and a lower cost of college for students. Additionally, companies are attracted to cities that have a high percentage of college graduates, thus creating an abundance of jobs and boosting the local economy.

“My board and I believe that today’s youth is our greatest resource,” said Kim Campbell, president of the Assistance League Tulsa. “By making a college education affordable and accessible to all, we are investing in the future of our community and in these talented students who are working hard to better their lives.”


La Fundación para las Escuelas de Tulsa, en asociación con Assistance League Tulsa, anuncia la financiación de todas las tarifas relacionadas con los cursos asociadas con la inscripción simultánea en Tulsa Community College para estudiantes de preparatoria de las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa en todos los semestres de primavera y otoño de 2022.

Cada semestre, alrededor de 100 estudiantes de las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa participan en la inscripción simultánea en Tulsa Community College. Si bien las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa sufragan los costos asociados con los libros de texto, materiales y los Regentes de Educación Superior del Estado de Oklahoma cubren los costos de matrícula, las tarifas asociadas con las clases siguen siendo una barrera para muchos estudiantes de preparatoria.

“Todos los jóvenes de Tulsa merecen la oportunidad de perseguir su sueño de asistir a la universidad”, dijo Anhna Vuong, presidenta y directora ejecutiva de la Fundación para las Escuelas de Tulsa. “Nos esforzamos por hacer que la educación universitaria sea más accesible y alcanzable, y la generosidad de Assistance League Tulsa nos está ayudando a lograr ese objetivo. Este es un gran ejemplo de cómo los sectores público y privado pueden trabajar juntos para invertir en nuestros estudiantes y en el futuro de nuestra ciudad y estado. "

Según un estudio de 2021 realizado por Jobs for the Future, los estudiantes que se matriculan en forma doble tienen más probabilidades de terminar la preparatoria y tener éxito en la educación postsecundaria que sus compañeros con un expediente académico similar.

“Las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa se comprometen a preparar a nuestros estudiantes para el éxito postsecundario y ayudarlos a comenzar una educación universitaria”, dijo la Dra. Perri Applegate, gerente de acceso postsecundario de las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa. “Servimos a una población estudiantil de alta pobreza con más del 80% de nuestros estudiantes elegibles para almuerzo gratis o precio reducido. Las becas proporcionadas por Assistance League Tulsa romperán aún más las barreras para la educación continua de nuestros estudiantes”.

La inscripción simultánea beneficia a los estudiantes de preparatoria, sus familias y la economía local. Los estudiantes inscritos en cursos universitarios mientras están en la escuela preparatoria experimentan un mayor acceso a la educación superior, una carrera más corta y un costo universitario más bajo para los estudiantes. Además, las empresas se sienten atraídas por las ciudades que tienen un alto porcentaje de graduados universitarios, lo que crea una gran cantidad de puestos de trabajo y estimula la economía local.

“Mi junta y yo creemos que la juventud de hoy es nuestro mayor recurso”, dijo Kim Campbell, presidenta de Assistance League Tulsa. “Al hacer que la educación universitaria sea asequible y accesible para todos, estamos invirtiendo en el futuro de nuestra comunidad y en estos estudiantes talentosos que trabajan arduamente para mejorar sus vidas”.
