The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Tulsa Community College

Tulsa Community College has served Tulsa and the surrounding communities since 1970. Since its inception, TCC has established a tradition of offering students a personal approach to higher education, an education that is designed to be practical and useful. When the College first opened its doors in September 1970, initial enrollment was 2,796 students. In the 40 years that the College has served the Greater Tulsa area, TCC has provided quality educational services to more than 450,000 people. TCC is consistently ranked in the top two percent of more than 1,150 community colleges nationally in the number of associate degrees awarded in all disciplines. TCC serves more students in higher education in northeastern Oklahoma than any other public college or university. The College is regularly among the state’s top three institutions in first-time college freshman enrollment. The largest two-year college in Oklahoma, TCC serves approximately 27,000 students annually in college credit classes. Of the first-time freshmen enrolling in a public college or university within the Oklahoma State System for Higher Education in recent years, sixty-five percent (65%) of the Tulsa County students begin their college education at Tulsa Community College.
