Tulsa Achieves Provides Free Tuition

Tulsa Community College launched Tulsa Achieves in 2007 as a program designed to provide all Tulsa County high school seniors the opportunity to attend college at no cost to their families – to achieve in life regardless of their ability to pay. Within a few months TCC’s first-time attending students from Tulsa County nearly doubled. The recent national recommendation to make community college free for all citizens proposes to take a public program that has worked well in Tulsa to the national level.

“We are pleased to see the Tulsa Achieves concept recognized as a model that would benefit individuals, families and communities across the country,” says President Leigh B. Goodson. “Our proven success in making college accessible for all high school students with Tulsa Achieves has the same potential for all community college students and has proven to support our economy by increasing college graduates.”

TCC’s Tulsa Achieves program has been a leader in helping to strengthen Tulsa’s workforce by providing access to higher education to all students who maintain good academic standing. More than 1,500 students enter each year as Tulsa Achieves students. Since 2007, more than 12,000 high school seniors have realized their education and career dreams by participating in the Tulsa Achieves program.
