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 Associate in Applied Science in Applied Technology degree at RSU. After successfully completing the required general education and core courses at RSU, students will have earned their associate's 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 the 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's degree. However,  in some circumstances, for high school students, those fees may be waived. Contact the RSU enrollment office for more information.
