OSU-Tulsa brings OSU's land-grant mission to an urban setting. Access to education is essential to our mission.

OSU's Research university in downtown Tulsa

OSU-Tulsa is a transfer institution, offering junior- and senior-level undergraduate coursework, as well as graduate degrees and certificates.
Students earn the same OSU degree that students in Stillwater earn, in an environment that is especially sensitive to the needs of working professionals. OSU-Tulsa's downtown location adds to the value of that degree by giving students access to the internship and volunteer opportunities, cultural attractions and social scene that come with an urban campus.


On Jan. 1, 1999, the former University Center at Tulsa campus became Oklahoma State University-Tulsa


are earning an OSU degree in Tulsa. Many of our students also take classes from other OSU campuses.

Community Engagement

Our Students

Making college manageable and affordable for working adults
OSU-Tulsa's class schedules are created to help students balance busy lives with earning a degree:
  • Choose between online, in-person and hybrid classes
  • Most on-campus classes are offered one night a week
  • Most on-campus classes start at 4:30 p.m. or later
Earning an OSU degree in Tulsa is affordable. OSU-Tulsa has awarded more than $3 million in scholarships since 2005, and awards thousands of dollars in grants and financial aid each year.
Since OSU-Tulsa's undergraduate students are all transfer students, many spend their freshman and sophomore years at local two-year colleges, which typically have lower costs.

Our Community

The OSU-Tulsa campus is located in Tulsa’s Greenwood district, the historic home of Black Wall Street and the events of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. The Greenwood district exists on the boundaries of Cherokee, Osage, and Creek Nation land.
