Tulsans who have some college credit and want to finish their bachelor’s degree can find the information and resources they need at an upcoming weeklong degree completion event at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa from April 15 - 18. Each day of Reach Higher: Reconnect Week features activities designed with your future in mind, including an Engineering Open House at the Helmerich Research Center and an informative webinar with transfer experts.


“For many industries, a bachelor's degree is required for career advancement,” said Craig Freeman, interim vice provost and dean of the College of Professional Studies at OSU-Tulsa. “Nearly 150,000 residents in Green Country have some college credit but no bachelor’s degree. If that sounds like you, it might be time to finish your degree.”


One of the key events of Reconnect Week is the degree completion webinar on April 15 at 6 p.m. This program offers guidance from transfer experts on how to make the most of existing college credits, options for paying for college and information on how OSU-Tulsa makes it possible to balance work and education. Registration for the event is open now.


The Engineering Open House at the Helmerich Research Center will give participants the opportunity to tour the state-of-the-art facility, meet with representatives from the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology and learn more about OSU-Tulsa. The tour begins at 4 p.m. and will include light refreshments. Registration is required.


Reconnect Week participants can also take part in an OSU-Tulsa campus tour, as well as virtual and in-person appointments with admissions counselors who can help explore options for earning your degree.


"Your bachelor's degree is more accessible than you think," Freeman said. "With our scholarship resources, credit transfers and flexible class options, we can help you earn an OSU degree in a way that works for you.”


OSU-Tulsa is part of Reach Higher: DirectComplete, a statewide degree completion program that connects adult students with the resources and guidance they need to finish their bachelor's degree.


Registration is required for Reach Higher: Reconnect Week events. Participants can find registration forms for each event on the OSU-Tulsa website.
