Career Tech Cooperative Alliance Program

As part of the Cooperative Alliance Project, Oklahoma State University-IT, Rogers State University, and Tulsa Community College, in partnership with Tulsa Technology Center, have been approved to allow high school students to enroll in technical programs and courses under separate admission standards. 

Bus Route information

This partnership allows an 11th or 12th grade student enrolled in an accredited high school to be admitted to OSU-IT, RSU, or TCC and enroll in technical courses only for concurrent credit. 

Students must meet the following standards:

  1. Option I-ACT: 19 composite without the writing component
  2. Option 2-ACT PLAN: 15
  3. Option 3-High School GPA: 2.5

In addition to meeting the requirements above, students must provide a letter of support from a high school counselor and written permission from a parent or legal guardian.  All other concurrent admission policy requirements remain in effect for technical students, including retention standards.

Once a student has qualified for admission into an Alliance program, that student needs to only maintain the 2.0 GPA requirement to enroll for the next semester’s classes.  Students who wish to exceed the 19 hours allowed for this program may petition the higher education institution.

Certain technology courses are OHLAP (Oklahoma's Promise) approved courses.  A list is available here or the student may consult his or her counselor.  Oklahoma's Promise students must have two years of the same foreign/non-English language OR two years of computer science/computer technology.  One year of each will not count for Oklahoma's Promise.
