Tulsa Achieves

Tulsa Community College helps eliminate the financial burden of attending college by providing additional funding to fill the "gap" between financial aid and the cost of attending college.

For eligible students, Tulsa Achieves pays up to 100 percent of tuition and fees for a maximum of 63 college credit hours. As a gap-funding program, Tulsa Achieves pays any remaining balance after all state, federal and private aid and grant funding have been applied. The student is only responsible for the cost of books!

Tulsa Achieves students begin their coursework the fall semester after high school graduation and may continue in the program for 63 credit hours of three years, whichever comes first.

Tulsa Achieves Requirements:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen or Legal Resident of the U.S.
  • Non-citizens are eligible for the My Dream/Mi Sueño Scholarship, which provides up to $2,000 per semester for up to 3 years or 60 credit hours.
  • Live in Tulsa County
  • Have and maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average
  • Enroll at TCC the fall semester after they graduate and every fall and spring semester while attending
  • Provide TCC with ACT or SAT scores, four-year high school transcripts, and Free Application for Federal Student Aid and Tulsa Achieves Application (FAFSA)
  • Complete three-fourths or more of their college classes and fill out the FAFSA every year
  • Complete 40 hours of community service each year

Students who have lived in Tulsa County from ninth through 12th grade will have 100% of their tuition and mandatory fees paid; 10th through 12th grade, 75 percent; 11th and 12th grade, 50 percent; and 12th grade, 25 percent.

Mandatory fees are those that all TCC students pay and do not include program-specific fees, such as fees for certain classes.

Applications are available at www.tulsacc.edu, in TCC registration offices, and at Union High School’s College and Career Center.  Please make note of the application deadline which varies slightly from year to year.

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
