IMPORTANT! STUDENTS MUST APPLY FOR THE BRIDGE PROGRAM BEFORE GRADUATING FROM NOC!
The Bridge program was approved by the presidents of both Northern Oklahoma College and Northwestern Oklahoma State University during the Fall 2007 semester. Its purpose is to help aid students by making it possible to be jointly admitted and eligible to enroll concurrently at both NOC and Northwestern, eliminating barriers to attaining educational goals, improving academic program articulation and expanding options for college services.
Students can be admitted to the program at any time that they meet either the freshman or transfer admission criteria of Northwestern depending on number of hours of college credit completed at the time of application. Course enrollment and programs and services for dual students are available based on the semester calendar.
Once accepted to the Bridge program, students may enroll in classes at any NOC campus in Tonkawa, Enid or Stillwater, as well as any Northwestern campus in Alva, Enid or Woodward. Designated academic advisors are available at each campus.
