The annual Research Retreat is coming up on October 20, from 9:00 to 2:30. This one-day workshop is open to all interested TCC students from any campus and any academic discipline. Learn about research opportunities, research questions, research ethics, types of primary research, and tips for evaluating sources as you conduct your research. The retreat will take place on Metro Campus, in the Thomas K. McKeon Center for Creativity. Participants must be currently enrolled (fall 2017) TCC students. Although the workshop is free, advance registration is required. Registration opens October 6 and is limited to 65 students. To register, visit Honors News and Activities.
The Tulsa Community College Honors Program gives curious, motivated students an exciting and stimulating option for satisfying their degree requirements. We offer honors classes on all four campuses, and we administer the Honors Scholar program, through which you may graduate as an Honors Scholar. We also offer scholarships, research and service opportunities, and some transfer advantages!
Honors classes are open to all interested students; in other words, you can take honors classes without being an Honors Scholar. In honors classes, you'll enjoy lively discussions, hands-on activities, and small class sizes. Most honors classes are in general-education courses - the classes that many students call "the basics." Depending on your major, you may also find honors sections of more specialized courses in your chosen field.
Honors Scholars take at least 24 credit hours of honors classes (or 21 honors credit hours with an approved, student-proposed service project) and complete an associate degree. If you complete the program and graduate with an overall TCC grade point average of at least 3.5, your transcript will bear the Honors Scholar designation. Special scholarship opportunities, such as the TCC Honors Tuition Waiver and a large transfer scholarship from the The University of Tulsa, are among the benefits available to TCC Honors Scholars.
You are welcome to contact the Honors Office with any questions, and we'll be glad to respond!
