With Vaccine Rollout, Tulsans Looking for Options

As more and more Americans receive the COVID-19 vaccine, many are looking to the future and a return to more normal activities. To help address the question of what’s next, Tulsa Community College offers an immediate start to college with eight-week courses that begin next week.

The eight-week classes are full credit courses and cover the same amount of content in a compact timeframe. The second eight weeks runs from March 22 to May 16.

“Half the length of a traditional 16-week college semester, the eight-week classes give individuals the chance to jumpstart and quickly get back to earning a degree. Admittedly, there have been so many distractions in the past year with the pandemic, but you don’t have to wait any longer,” said Rachael Achivare Hill, director of TCC Admissions & Prospective Student Services.

Eight-week courses are on an accelerated timeline, and many students find they really like the opportunity to focus on fewer subjects at a time.

“For those who considered attending college for the Spring semester but were unsure about enrolling back in January, this is a great opportunity. We want individuals to stay on track with their college plans and their goal of earning a degree,” said Archivare Hill.

Eight-week classes for Spring 2021 start Monday, March 22. Students must be enrolled in classes before the first time a class meets.

TCC staff will be available during Spring Break, March 15 – 20, to assist future students with enrollment. Those interested in learning more can call 918-595-8000 or visit virtual admissions on the TCC website to get started. In addition, TCC will offer a virtual tour of Metro Campus on Tuesday, March 16. Pre-registration is required.
