'Get Here' tuition waiver offers incentive for taking onsite classes at OSU-Tulsa this fall
Oklahoma State University-Tulsa is offering undergraduate and graduate students a financial incentive for taking classes on campus this fall.
The “Get Here” tuition waiver offers students a $250 discount for taking classes on campus at OSU-Tulsa instead of online for the Fall 2013 semester. Undergraduate students with a 2.00 GPA must be taking at least 15 hours onsite and not have any other tuition waivers. Graduate students with a 3.00 GPA must take at least nine hours onsite, but may have other tuition waivers up to the cost of their tuition.
“Being in the classroom enables students to interact with their professors and fellow classmates, while providing other benefits only available through face-to-face instruction,” said Susan Tolbart, director of recruitment and student development at OSU-Tulsa. “This waiver offers a financial incentive for students to get the most out of their college experience by taking classes on campus.”
Students who switch from an online class to an on-campus course can receive additional savings on course fees.
“By switching from an online to an on-campus class, students will also save money by not paying online course fees,” said Tolbart. “Combined with the waiver, those savings would be more than half the cost of tuition for a three-hour course.”
The “Get Here” Tuition Waiver is available for both resident and non-resident students. It applies to the cost of tuition only and may be combined with scholarships.
