Tulsa Achieves

TU Brings On-campus Opportunity to Tulsa Achieve Students

In addition to receiving free tuition and textbooks at TCC, Tulsa Achieves scholarship students are also eligible to participate in the Partners in Progress (P2 or P-squared) program—a traditional, on-campus residential experience at TU.

According to the TU website, the P2 Program “provides students with a residential campus experience on the TU campus where they can live among their fellow students and have full access to campus facilities such as the library and fitness center and all activities except participation as student athletes in intercollegiate athletics.”

The on-campus student is also provided with a free, three-hour TU course each semester, as well as free and/or discounted admission to TU cultural and sporting events. After completing at least 48 hours of course work at TCC with a minimum GPA of 2.5, they are automatically enrolled full-time at TU and eligible for additional grants and scholarships up to a maximum of $10,000 per year.

The Tulsa Achieves program began Fall 2007 with nearly 1,400 students enrolled from public, private and home schools. The purpose of the program is to provide “students in Tulsa County the opportunity to attend college based on their ability to achieve, not on their ability to pay.”

The program pays up to 100% of tuition and fees for up to 60 college credit hours for students living in Tulsa County.

Students must remain in good academic standing (2.0 GPA or higher) and provide 40 hours of community service per academic year.

Applications for the 2008 Tulsa Achieves class will be accepted beginning January 2008. Deadline for application for the Tulsa Achieves Scholarship program is April 30 of each year. For more information on the Tulsa Achieves program, see their Web site.
