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. There is no cost to the student!*

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 does not cover the cost of books.

All students have to do is:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen or Legal Resident of the U.S.
  • 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 the college with their 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 percent 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.  Once the deadline passes, the opportunity is over, no exceptions.
