As the oldest and largest technology center in Oklahoma’s nationally-acclaimed CareerTech system, Tulsa Tech works hard to consistently set itself apart as a quality technical training school. Tulsa Tech offers affordable industry-standard training in an engaging, innovative learning environment where students benefit from instructors with years of valuable industry experience.

Tulsa Tech offers a range of opportunities to prepare students for career success. With six locations in the Tulsa metro area, a campus is never too far away.

Tulsa Tech is a recognized contributor to regional economic prosperity with a sole vision based on leading the region’s career and technical education, resulting in a quality job for every Tulsa Tech student and a skilled workforce for all companies. Therefore, Tulsa Tech’s mission is educating people for success in the workplace.

We take great pride in being a highly-diversified institution that rivals the complexities of many colleges and universities and serves as a link between students and the developing economy of the Tulsa region.

Tulsa Tech currently serves over 5,500 high school and adult students with over 80 full-time career major offerings; we also provide training for over 31,000 customers in both part-time classes and customized business and industry training.

Programs include health sciences, aerospace, pre-engineering, automotive, and information technology. Tuition is free for public, private and home-schooled high school students with affordable tuition for adult learners. Class offerings are designed to fit any schedule, with morning, afternoon, evening and all-day class options.

In addition, in order to aid individuals who are no longer in high school, Tulsa Tech offers the Accelerating Independence Scholarship, which covers 100 percent of tuition and required fees for individuals age 18-23 with GED or high school degrees from any in-district, public, parochial or home school. The Accelerating Independence Scholarship was developed to help provide a pathway for this age group to acquire the skills that currently align with the industry needs of the region.

Increasing student educational access and career success are among Tulsa Tech’s top priorities. To facilitate this, Tulsa Tech offers many shorter courses aligned with overall career majors and industry certifications provided to our students in a more business-friendly way. Many of these part-time classes build upon larger career majors and ultimately offer students optional pathways within a particular career field.

Tulsa Tech believes in providing students with resources for work-based experience and placement, resources which are critical for making the transition from classroom to workplace. Our strong partnerships with business and industry in the region create unique opportunities for student placement and work-based experiences. Students who successfully complete training are referred to available and appropriate employers in their respective career fields. Career advisement is also available for middle school, high school and adult students within the metro area.

If you fit into any of the above categories and are currently looking for an opportunity to explore a challenging new career, quality customized business and industry training, or exciting evening and weekend classes, Tulsa Tech invites you to visit today to Make Your Own Path.
