We provide affordable, industry-standard technical training in an engaging, innovative learning environment where students benefit from instructors with years of valuable industry experience.
Tulsa Tech offers a wide range of opportunities to prepare students for success in a career. With six campuses in the Tulsa metro area, a campus is never too far away.
A recognized contributor to regional economic prosperity, we have one vision, to be the region’s leader of career and technical education, resulting in a quality job for every Tulsa Tech student and a skilled workforce for every company, and our mission is simple; 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 serving as a link between students and the developing economy of the Tulsa metro area.
Tulsa Tech currently serves over 5,500 high school and adult students, exploring over 80 full-time career majors, in addition to providing training for over 31,000 customers in both part-time classes and customized business and industry training.
Students can choose from a variety of exciting programs, including 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. We offer morning, afternoon, evening and all-day classes to fit any schedule.
Tulsa Tech offers the Accelerating Independence Scholarship, which covers 100 percent of tuition and fees for individuals ages 18-23 with 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 our region.
Increasing student educational access and career success are among Tulsa Tech’s top priorities. To facilitate this, we have created 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 Tulsa metro area.
