Oklahomans who have successfully completed some college coursework, but have not yet finished a college degree will have the unique opportunity to submit college admission applications, receive advisement and financial aid counseling, and enroll in college classes with support from knowledgeable staff members during Carl Albert State College’s Reach Higher: RECONNECT Week event on Saturday, July 27, 2019.
Reach Higher: RECONNECT Week is a series of coordinated student recruitment events to be held July 27-Aug. 1 at participating Reach Higher campuses across the state. The primary goals of Reach Higher: RECONNECT Week are to increase awareness of the adult-friendly degree completion options available through the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s Reach Higher initiative and encourage adults who have earned some college credit to successfully complete their degrees.
CASC will host engaging events with free food for participants, and will open the following offices to potential students who might need services in: Admissions, Financial Aid, Business Office, Enrollment Management, Testing, and Student Affairs.
Additionally, CASC will remain open until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30, to accommodate other students who are not able to attend the Saturday event.
Reach Higher provides two distinct degree completion program strands for adult learners. Reach Higher: FlexFinish offers flexible enrollment and online options to working adults who wish to pursue an associate degree in enterprise development or a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership at one of 21 participating colleges and universities in Oklahoma. Reach Higher: DirectComplete offers adult students the opportunity to complete a degree program connected with workforce development needs that align with Oklahoma’s 100 Critical Occupations list.
