Tulsa Tech announced recently that the career and technical training school district is ready to assist students whose career paths have been delayed by the sudden closing of Wright Career College (a private vocational school not affiliated with Oklahoma’s nationally-recognized CareerTech system).
“Academic records for each student will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis so that we can help as many of the affected students as possible,” said Dr. Steve Tiger, Superintendent and of Tulsa Tech.
Many students at Wright Career College were weeks away from finishing their training programs when the private vocational school unexpectedly announced its closure and bankruptcy on April 15.
“We have many of the same career training options that Wright students had, and also have partnerships with regional colleges and universities. Whether students were currently on a certification, associate’s degree, or bachelor’s degree path, we are here to help,“ Tiger added.
Students are encouraged to call 918-828-5000 to speak with a Tulsa Tech Career Advisor for more information. Representatives will be available to discuss specifics and explore possible options with students. Many programs starting this summer and fall have available space for impacted students, who can explore campus-specific opportunities during a tour on Thursday’s at 3pm.
