Why Bridge? You may have started college in the past and had to leave because of financial, family or professional pressures. As a working adult, you may now be in a position to consider completing your degree to move further up the ladder in the workplace. You may have been in a college system briefly, but other responsibilities took priority. You are ready to resume your studies. You may have decided that college was not where you wanted to be earlier. Now is different. You are older and wiser about setting goals.

Bridge is literally an academic bridge to get you from a limited number of college credits to a place where completing your degree is a realistic goal. It is a means to an, flexible and doable.

There are many good reasons to enter the Bridge program. Our job is to make sure you meet your goals. Because your time is valuable, we use an accelerated and flexible format. The courses you take meet general education requirements and prepare you for a transition into a degree completion program. Bridge gives you a way to cross from one point to another in obtaining your undergraduate degree. Ultimately, your success is our goal.

The Bridge program allows students to obtain general education credit in an accelerated manner. Using an open enrollment format, adult students select schedules and classes tailored to individual needs. Bridge is designed to assist students in reaching 60 college credit hours needed to enter a degree completion program (Organizational Leadership, Business Administration, Criminal Justice and Family Studies & Gerontology). Students must have 6 transferable credit hours to enter the Bridge program. Classes meet one night a week. The Bridge program is offered at our Tulsa campus via teleconference and some courses are available online.
