The Focus Is You

Message From the Dean

Sherron ManningWelcome to the College of Associate and Applied Programs at Southwestern Oklahoma State University!

It is my great pleasure to lead an outstanding team of faculty, staff and administrators whose sole professional goal is to enhance the lives of students in Western Oklahoma and beyond. We are here to serve you, the student, as you pursue a degree in higher education.

Sayre Junior College was established in 1938 by legislative authority, conferring degrees for the first time in 1940. In July 1987, by act of the Oklahoma legislature, Sayre Junior College was merged with Southwestern Oklahoma State University and renamed as the College of Associate and Applied Programs. It offers open enrollment and is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Accreditation. The College of Associate and Applied Programs offers Associate of Science and Associate of Applied Science degrees in both general and specialized areas of study. Course work will transfer to other higher education institutions. Among them are Southwestern Oklahoma State University at Weatherford, other Oklahoma regional universities, the University of Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State University.

If you are looking for a college experience with small classes, individual attention and quality education, the College of Associate and Applied Programs is for you.

Warmest Regards,

Bill Swartwood
