TCC Concurrent Enrollment

Earn College and High School Credits at the Same Time

Union students have the opportunity to academically challenging courses through Tulsa Community College while still in Union High School’s supportive. Not only do students earn college credit, but their college courses also count toward high school graduation requirements!

The Requirements

In order to be eligible for concurrent enrollment classes, students must:

  • Have a 2.5 GPA or higher 
  • Have a composite ACT score of 19 or greater, including a 19 in reading 
  • Depending on the course selected, a 19 is usually required in the subject area 
  • For college algebra, a 20 ACT score in math is required

College-level course rigor requires disciplined study habits, research, independent study, and group work.

Attendance and eligibility are monitored as required by the Oklahoma State Department of Education and the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA). 

Grades placed on the transcript are used for Grade Point Average and class ranking calculations and are assigned a 4.0 weight on the Union weighted grading scale. College course grades are monitored and used for determining OSSAA eligibility on a weekly basis. 

Course Details

The TCC courses meet on the Union High School campus on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday during the school day. Students also have access to free tutoring for Freshman Composition and College Algebra directed by a certified UHS teacher on Wednesdays and Fridays during the hour they have concurrent classes.

Cost

Concurrent enrollment courses are offered tuition-free for students, up to six credit hours per semester. Union Public Schools provides the textbooks. Students are only responsible for paying TCC’s student fee of $12.75 per course.

How to Enroll

Contact your school counselor for more information and to sign up for a concurrent enrollment course. There are many factors to consider when selecting courses, so speak with your guidance counselor about whether you plan to attend college in state or out of state, which state school you plan to attend, and whether you have taken and passed any AP exams.

What students are saying

“It’s an easy way to get your basics done, especially if you have several more years of school to look forward to.”

“It’s nice because I only have class three days a week, so some days I get to sleep in;  some days I get to leave early.”

“There are freedoms that you have that aren’t there in just high school, but the  reality is that you’re in college too.  It’s a wonderful thing when students persist.”

“I think it’s a cheaper, easier way to get it done and get hours of college under your belt.  It’s an easier transition and really beneficial.”

“Classes fill up really fast for concurrent in the morning because it’s free and it’s a good deal, so everyone signs up as fast as they can.”

From a parent whose daughter is in two of the courses….“Not only is she thriving, she absolutely loves the professors, the content, and having Mondays and Friday’s off.  That is all she ever talks about.  It makes us relax a bit about sending her off to OU next fall.  She is so ready to go!

Administrative Changes Announced

Scott Pennington named director of new Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning Department;   Clayton Hucke named interim 7th Grade Principal

Dear Union Parents and Guardians: 

I am excited to announce that Mr. Scott Pennington, principal at the Union 6th & 7th Grade Center, has been asked to lead a new department within Teaching and Learning entitled Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning. As you know, we are in the second year of our five-year district strategic plan. One of the elements of this plan is Union’s Learning Model that focuses on literacy, cognitive capacity, engagement, and social and emotional learning.

As we continuously evaluate our data, and hear from teachers and our site leaders, there continues to be a dominant narrative that more must be done to address the social and emotional development of our students. Collectively speaking, our teachers continue to do amazing work in providing dynamic learning experiences for our students. It is now time for us to articulate a tiered approach to addressing unwanted student behaviors and student trauma – at all grade levels – while also fostering greater hope and confidence in our students’ lives. The idea is that we will be more proactive in our efforts, providing counseling and guidance to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. I firmly believe this will make a positive difference in our students’ lives and in the learning culture of our buildings.

Mr. Pennington’s work as a special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal make him uniquely qualified to lead in this new position. In addition to this change, I am also pleased to announce that Mr. Clay Hucke, assistant principal at Union High School, has been asked to serve as an interim principal at the Sixth & Seventh Grade Center. Mr. Hucke has done an outstanding job at the high school and he looks forward to serving the students, staff, and parents at this site.

Please join me in congratulating Mr. Pennington and Mr. Hucke. These moves will become effective January 1, 2020.

Respectfully,

Kirt Hartzler, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Union Public Schools
