SWOSU-Sayre Offers Night Classes This Fall in Elk City


Southwestern Oklahoma State University at Sayre is taking classes on the road.

Beginning in August, SWOSU-Sayre will offer three night classes in Elk City.  Computer/Information Access, Human Physiology and Introduction to Public Speaking will be taught in Elk City as part of the SWOSU-Sayre night class schedule this fall.

“We’re trying to make college more convenient for students,” said SWOSU-Sayre instructor Landry Brewer.  “Working adults may not be able to drive from Elk City, Canute, Hammon or Burns Flat in time for a night class at Sayre.  Having classes in Elk City eliminates that problem.”

Working adults in and around Elk City aren’t the only ones who could benefit.

“High school juniors and seniors are also eligible to take these classes,” Brewer said.  “So if you’re an Elk City, Merritt, or Canute student, or even a Hammon or Burns Flat-Dill City student, this would be a great way for you to get a jump on college and a career.”

High school seniors who take these courses do not have to pay tuition.  Oklahoma high school seniors with a minimum ACT score may take college courses, and the state picks up the tab for the tuition. More than 9,200 Oklahoma high school students took college courses in the last academic year, thanks largely to Governor Henry’s plan waiving tuition for seniors. 

SWOSU-Sayre will continue to offer a full lineup of night classes at the Sayre campus as well as classes in Elk City. Facilities for the Elk City classes are provided by the Elk City Public Schools.

Landry said night classes meet one night a week August through December.
