‘Get Here’ tuition waiver offers incentive for taking onsite classes this fall

Get Here Tuition Waver Program

OSU-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 instead of online for the Fall 2013 semester.

Undergraduate students with a 2.00 GPA must be taking at least 15 hours on site and not have any other tuition waivers. Graduate students with a 3.00 GPA must take at least nine hours on site, but may have other tuition waivers up to the cost of their tuition.

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.

For more information on the “Get Here” tuition waiver or to see if you are eligible, contact the OSU-Tulsa Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at 918-594-8273.

Storm shelters available on campus during severe weather

Storm Ready UniversityWith severe weather season in full swing, OSU-Tulsa is reminding students, faculty and staff that storm shelters are available on campus. Review OSU-Tulsa’s guidelines for severe weather to determine what action to take.

OSU-Tulsa rarely closes. OSU-Tulsa officials monitor weather conditions and take action accordingly when severe weather is indicated. In the event of a tornado warning, OSU-Tulsa University Police will aid students, faculty, staff and visitors with instructions via campus loudspeaker system or in person. Unless directed otherwise, seek shelter in the following areas:

  • Main Hall: 1100 wing, 1300 wing or 1400 wing restrooms (lower level).
  • North Hall: Conference Center (includes the B.S. Roberts Room and North Hall 153, 155 and 156).
  • Auditorium: Restrooms in the auditorium lobby or the Conference Center in North Hall.
  • Administration Hall: First floor restrooms and other rooms away from windows.
  • Helmerich Research Center: First floor interior restrooms adjacent to the atrium.

Stay away from windows and exterior doors, crouch down against a wall and protect your head with your arms. If you are caught outside of a building or in a car, lie flat on the ground, face down, preferably in a ditch or depression, but be alert for flash floods. It is generally too risky to go to another building once tornado sirens have sounded, so be aware of storm shelter locations.

OSU-Tulsa University Police will provide direction and issue the "All Clear" signal using the campus-wide loudspeaker system.
