Explore “Return to College” Events Planned July 17 and July 20 at SWOSU

Southwestern Oklahoma State University will help Oklahomans who have successfully completed some college coursework, but have not yet finished a college degree, with a unique opportunity to submit college admission applications, receive advisement and financial aid counseling, and enroll in college classes on Saturday, July 17, and Tuesday, July 20, on the Weatherford campus.

Reach Higher: RECONNECT is a series of coordinated recruitment events for the Reach Higher program, which is for adults who have successfully completed some college coursework but have not yet finished a college degree.

SWOSU faculty and staff will be on site in the Memorial Student Center from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday (July 17) and 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday (July 20). There will be free giveaways, and SWOSU will be offering free books for the first 15 residents that register for the first Reach Higher class this fall semester (ORGL 3113).

Dr. Todd Wiggen, coordinator of SWOSU’s Organizational Leadership Program (Reach Higher Flex Finish) said the Reach Higher adult-friendly degree completion options available through the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education encourage adults who have earned some college credit to successfully complete their degrees.

Reach Higher provides two distinct degree completion program strands for adult learners. Reach Higher: FlexFinish offers flexible enrollment and online options to working adults who wish to pursue an associate degree in enterprise development or a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership. Reach Higher: DirectComplete offers adult students the opportunity to complete a degree program connected with workforce development needs that align with Oklahoma’s 100 Critical Occupations list.
