Tulsa Achieves

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. The student is only responsible for the cost of books!

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 Requirements:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen or Legal Resident of the U.S.
  • Non-citizens are eligible for the My Dream/Mi Sueño Scholarship, which provides up to $2,000 per semester for up to 3 years or 60 credit hours.
  • 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 TCC with 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% 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.

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
