Earn College Credits for Technology Center Classes

Jump Start Your College Career

Want to get a  jump start on earning a college degree? High school and adult students can earn up to 30 hours of college credit for courses taken at area Technology Centers and apply those credit hours towards an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree from Rogers State University.

This program allows students like you to get a head start towards a college dgree. Plus, since students only pay a small, per-hour service fee to transfer the credit hours, you can enjoy a significant cost savings.

How It Works

Students enrolled in an approved program at area Technology Centers can apply up to 30 hours of their technical credits toward a two-year A.A.S. degree at RSU. After successfully completing the required general educational and core courses at RSU, students will have earned their associate degree.

Earn A Four-Year Degree

After completing the A.A.S. degree, students can continue their education by pursuing RSU's four-year Bachelor of Technology degree. RSU is one of a few universities in Oklahoma that offers both two-year and four-year technology degrees.


Students will be charged a nominal service fee of $8 per credit hour for the technical credits applied towards the associate degree. Contact the RSU Admissions Office for more information.
