OU to provide streamlined transfer pathways from three colleges

Nyk Daniels

The University of Oklahoma will make it easier for some community college and regional university students to transfer to the school.

Students at Tulsa and Oklahoma City Community Colleges as well as Cameron University will have a clear transfer path to the state’s flagship university.

OU announced Wednesday that it had inked a deal with the three colleges to create a seamless transition for students. As part of the agreement, the four schools committed to increase the resources available for potential transfer students.

"We have incredible students in our state who are working hard to achieve their goals and complete their degrees,” said Jeff Blahnik, senior associate vice president of the Division of Enrollment Management. “We want to do everything in our power to create a transfer process that is seamless. We want to make sure all students feel empowered and that they can thrive at OU.”

The move could potentially save thousands of dollars for individual students who start their college educations at Cameron or the two metro community colleges.
