Northwestern Oklahoma State University-Enid and Northern Oklahoma College-Enid are teaming together to host, “It’s Your Turn,” an informational meeting to help those who want to make a difference in their lives and go back to college to attain a degree.
“It’s Your Turn” will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 16, in the Northwestern-Enid commons area at 2929 E. Randolph from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Those attending this informational session will have an opportunity to visit with representatives from Northern and Northwestern-Enid to ask questions regarding the enrollment process, scholarship applications and financial aid, and the Bridge Program.
The Bridge Program allows students to be jointly admitted and eligible to enroll concurrently at both institutions and qualifies Northern graduates for scholarship opportunities from Northwestern.
“There are a lot of people in the Enid area who could be in college right now but do not know how the whole process works,” said Dr. Ed Vineyard, vice president for Northern-Enid.
“This meeting is a great opportunity to learn about all of the options Northern and Northwestern offer right here in Enid.”
Dr. Cheryl Evans, Northwestern-Enid dean, added, “It can be intimidating to return to school or start for the first time.”
“This event is designed to help these individuals learn what they need to know to get into to college, and begin working toward their educational and career goals right here in their hometown.”
For more information regarding “It’s Your Turn,” contact Lori Coonrod, student services coordinator at Northwestern-Enid, at (580) 213-3147, or Jodi Ackerman Northern-Enid, college relations coordinator, at (580) 548-2353.
This project is part of Reach Higher, Oklahoma’s degree completion program, for working adults who want to finish their degree in Oklahoma.
