Why earn a bachelor's degree?
A bachelor's degree is an ideal way to advance your career, change jobs or improve your quality of life. Research shows that people with bachelor's degrees earn more money over their lifetime, have greater job security and are more likely to receive benefits than those without a college degree.
In addition, OSU graduates earn higher salaries on average than graduates from regional or online-only universities. When you combine that with the thousands of dollars of financial aid and scholarships OSU-Tulsa students receive each year, earning an OSU degree in Tulsa is the best value in town.
