College Courses for High School Students

If you are a junior or senior in high school, you can enroll in classes at Tulsa Community College while still in high school. It’s called Concurrent High School Enrollment.

Concurrent enrollment allows you to get a head start on college by enrolling in college level courses while you complete your high school diploma. You will have earned college hours before you graduate high school.

At TCC, we encourage high school students who meet certain academic and testing requirements to apply online for college admissions and complete the concurrent enrollment application. Here is what we require:
