It's a sweet deal for Tulsa Community College students looking to transfer to a 4-year university.

TCC's president inked a deal Monday with Oral Roberts University's president. Under a new agreement, students who finish an associate’s degree, can now transition to ORU, almost seamlessly.

TCC’s chief academic officer, John Kontogianes: "the over arching agreement, allows up to 72 credit hours to transfer to ORU from TCC, this is something that our own sisters institutions, that are publicly supported do not typically do. So you are trendsetters.”

The deal will also let honors students transfer their honors credit hours to ORU.
