SWOSU-Sayre Offering Classes at Great Plains Regional Medical Center in Elk City


Southwestern Oklahoma State University-Sayre is teaming up again with Great Plains Regional Medical Center to offer college classes in Elk City.

The Sayre campus’ 2016 fall schedule includes three classes that will be taught by SWOSU-Sayre instructors Tuesday and Thursday mornings at GPRMC.

Bill Swartwood will teach College Algebra at 8 a.m.  Judy Haught will teach English Composition II at 9:30 a.m., and Landry Brewer will teach World History at 11 a.m.

Each class lasts one hour and 15 minutes and will meet in Meeting Room A, next to the hospital’s restaurant, The Grill @ 1705.

“More than ever, education beyond high school is necessary to qualify for skilled jobs,” said SWOSU-Sayre campus Dean Sherron Manning.  “With the recent economic downturn, now is a great time to re-tool and prepare for the kind of rewarding, stable career that a college education provides.”

Manning said that bringing classes to Elk City is just the latest effort to meet the needs of students who may not be able to attend classes at Sayre.

“In addition to our brick-and-mortar classes at the Sayre campus, we offer several online classes each semester,” Manning said.  “With classes coming to Elk City courtesy of GPRMC, a college education for area residents has never been so convenient and attainable.”

Financial aid is also available for all part-time and full-time students who qualify.  Enrollment for the fall semester is underway.  Classes begin in August and last until December.
