Kaplan International Pathways is thrilled to announce a new partnership with The University of Tulsa (TU). Located in Oklahoma, USA, TU is a top 100 national university (U.S. News 2017), and is ranked among the top 15 small universities in the world (Times Higher Education 2016).
This is an incredible opportunity for international students to earn a bachelor’s degree from a top university in the USA, at a campus that embraces diversity and demonstrates a global outlook. Aside from academics, TU has distinguished itself by building a truly multicultural community, where nearly 1 in 4 students comes from outside the USA.
About The University of Tulsa
Founded in 1894, TU is a leading private research university with several impressive distinctions. It excels in a number of subject areas, including:
- 4th in Petroleum Engineering (U.S. News 2017)
- Top 100 in Business (Bloomberg Businessweek 2016)
- 20th in Marketing (College Choice 2017)
- Top 100 in Law (U.S. News 2017)
The University offers more than 60 bachelor’s degree programs in disciplines including arts, business, computing, education, engineering, and natural and social sciences. Class sizes are small (the majority have fewer than 20 students), so students receive lots of attention from professors and university staff.
TU’s beautiful campus features state-of-the-art facilities for students to gain hands-on experience in fields like finance, entrepreneurship, engineering and the performing arts. The University also provides funds and faculty mentors for students to pursue advanced research projects.
International students benefit from TU’s vibrant campus life, which includes over 150 student organizations, 17 NCAA Division I sports teams and guaranteed on-campus student residences for 1st and 2nd year undergraduates. The University’s central location makes it really easy to explore downtown Tulsa, which combines the charms of a small town with all the benefits of a major city.
Your route to TU
TU offers direct entry to a bachelor’s degree to international students who meet all admission criteria. SAT or ACT scores are not required. Students who need to improve their English level may be conditionally admitted through one of the following programs at TU’s English Institute for International Students (EIIS):
- Intensive English
- Pathway to Academics
Well-qualified international applicants are also automatically considered – with no separate application – for partial merit scholarships that can be renewed for up to a total of 4 years of study. Both direct entry and EIIS students are eligible for scholarships, which are applied toward academic tuition once you start your degree. We encourage students to submit their application and documents as early as possible to maximize their chances!
Kaplan’s international education advisors offer expertise and peace of mind throughout the application process. Our tailored guidance includes a thorough review of your qualifications, and help preparing all your required documents.
