This option is for students wanting a professional career working in community agencies and programs providing services to children and families. Career paths include child and parenting practitioner, family life educator, pre-medicine, pre-law, child policy and advocacy and other options.

Note: Tulsa Community College’s Child Development Academic Program requires that all child development students enrolling in a child development laboratory course obtain a criminal background check at their own expense. Students must fill out and submit a Background Student Information Form along with Background Check Consent Form to the West Campus Child Development Academic Program office (S 128) or West Campus Liberal Arts office (L 144).
University Transfer Degree Information
Students should work closely with an academic advisor each semester to make certain you are enrolled in the correct courses for your degree program, especially if you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. Students are encouraged to begin a dialogue with their intended transfer schools as early as possible. Early coordination between TCC academic advisors and advisors from selected four-year institutions can streamline the transfer process. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she understands the program/admission/transfer requirements for the transfer school.
