SCU Begins Classes in Tulsa Metro

Students finalized their registration at the Tulsa orientation on Thursday, August 19th.


After months of preparations, marketing and recruiting, Southwestern Christian University (SCU) held a student orientation for the first incoming class at the new Tulsa metro location on Thursday evening, August the 19th. Lorena Ray, Director of Professional Studies for Southwestern Christian University, thought the event was a success for everyone involved. “The evening was an overwhelming success for Southwestern Christian University, with great long-term potential” says Ray. “It is a wonderful opportunity for working adults to reach their educational goal of earning a masters or bachelors degree.”

SCU team members from both the Professional Studies and Graduate programs have worked hard all summer to make the new Tulsa endeavor a success. “I am confident that we will surpass expectations in both the Professional Studies and Graduate programs by the end of the academic year.” says Dr. Ed Huckeby, President of Southwestern Christian University. “This is simply the beginning of a great outreach expansion for SCU in the Tulsa metro area.”

In January of 2010, SCU announced their planned entry into the Tulsa metro. In a cooperative agreement with RHEMA Bible Training Center (RBTC) in Broken Arrow, SCU is offering four undergraduate degree completion options and two graduate degree concentrations at the RBTC campus. Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, Business Leadership, Human and Family Services and Biblical Leadership are being offered in a one-night-per-week format. The Master of Ministry degree with emphasis in either Life Coaching or Leadership is also available. Depending on previous educational and life experience, students will be able to complete degrees in as few as 16 to 18 months.
