The University of Tulsa (TU) is a private, comprehensive doctoral-degree-granting university that provides education of the highest quality in the arts, humanities, sciences, engineering, business, education, applied health sciences, and law. TU features four undergraduate colleges: the Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences, the Collins College of Business, the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences, and the College of Health Sciences, as well as the College of Law and Graduate School.

TU's 11:1 student/faculty ratio, average class size of 20, and emphasis on individual attention anchor an educational culture where students are rigorously challenged and comprehensively supported.

The university is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities, and is an NCAA Division IA participant in the American Athletic Conference. TU maintains a covenant relationship with the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Extracurricular opportunities include intramural sports, special-interest clubs, pre-professional organizations, national fraternities and sororities, community service organizations, an active student government, departmental honorary organizations, and campus ministry groups.

Total fall 2014 enrollment was 4,682, with 3,473 undergraduates and 1,209 graduate and law students. The ratio of men to women is 57:43 and 18% are multicultural students. Over half the students are from out of state and international students make up about 20 percent of the student population, with 73 countries represented. U.S. News & World Report's 2015 Best Colleges ranks TU among the top 100 doctoral/research national universities.


From The School

The University of Tulsa seeks students whose academic background indicates potential for success in the university's rigorous academic environment. Performance in high school college-preparatory subjects and scores on the SAT or ACT are key factors in the admission evaluation, but each applicant is reviewed holistically. The counselor recommendation, extracurricular activities, and indicators of leadership, creativity, and focus are all taken into consideration. Campus visits and interviews are highly recommended.

TU has a non-binding, Early Action freshman admission plan with an application deadline of November 1. Decisions are mailed within three weeks. Applications received after November 1 are reviewed under a Rolling Admission process with notifications made on an ongoing basis after mid-December.

An application with a $50 application fee, official high school transcript, ACT or SAT score results, and a guidance counselor recommendation are required of freshman applicants.

Students Say

According to its happy undergrads, the University of Tulsa provides the “best aspects of a large state school and a small private school, in addition to great scholarships.” Students name “a combination of excellent scholarship money, transferable credits from my high school,” and “great programs across the board,” as factors that attracted them to the Oklahoman campus of about 4,500. TU “offers full-ride scholarships for National Merit Finalists,” and students enjoy “interesting classes that are actually relevant to our fields of study.” They feel well-rounded, saying their “school is truly dedicated to providing the premier college experience academically, athletically, and socially.” Student rave about the “great student to faculty ratio” and love that TU has a “small school feel while still being big enough to be Division I” in college athletics. They call their professors “smart, entertaining, caring individuals,” who “have reached peak success in their fields” and are “very dedicated to their classes and course material. They all seem to love what they do and want us to love it too.” One student comments, “All my professors know me by my first name.” Students appreciate “all the hands-on, extra opportunities” they are offered along with classes as well as having “plenty of opportunities for undergraduate research.” TU’s “exceptional engineering degree” and “nursing program” stand out, among other programs. Undergrads say, “Major-specific ‘Special Topics’ courses...are limited to a very small number of students and taught by an expert in that field,” and these “tend to be the best classes.” “I feel better prepared than many of my friends who have attended other universities because of the challenging workload and the professors.”

Students Say

According to, the average starting salary for a Tulsa graduate is roughly $55,000, and popular careers include petroleum engineer, reservoir engineer, and attorney. While some students note that the school’s career services could cater to a wider base than just engineering students, others praise Tulsa’s availability of “internship and [post-college] opportunities” along with “chances to meet possible employers.” The school’s website provides access to a feature called “Golden OpporTUnities,” where current and past students can peruse over 500 potential jobs or internships. In addition to hosting four job fairs a year on campus, the Office of Career Services also offers resume assistance and interview preparation for students, as well as facilitates job presentations for interested student-led organizations and clubs on campus. Faculty support student success, as well, through academic mentoring or by incorporating real-world projects into their coursework so that undergrads can hone their teamwork and professional presentation skills before graduation.

Students Say

TU students describe their campus community as a “small student population in a growing city” and feel that “the size is perfect.” While “the typical student goes to class and takes his or her studies seriously,” that student is also likely to be both “very studious and fun.” “There are various groups on campus and pretty much everyone finds something for them,” meaning that collectively, “our quirky attitudes mesh together and the student culture is fleshed out well.” “There is an interesting mix at TU because 1/4 of the students are international,” and “this diversity is well appreciated and allows students to find areas where they will fit in and excel.” Indeed, one student sums TU up by calling it “a diverse community striving together to better ourselves and the world around us.” TU students are “often religious, “smart, ambitious and pretty friendly,” and perhaps “conservative.”

At The University of Tulsa, students are leading the charge on sustainability. At Golden Hurricane athletic events, the student-run Green Team helps the university’s recycling efforts by making sure recyclables are not thrown in the trash. The Green Team utilizes volunteer student groups for the program during football and basketball games. Meanwhile, the Campus dining program is committed to bringing in as much organic and locally produced goods as possible. The program has allowed local dairies and farms to supply an increasing amount of organic foods to TU. The administration is committed to sustainability and has numerous programs to improve the campus’s environmental footprint. Recycling bins and totes are handed out to students, and the university aims to meet LEED standards in its building construction. In the dining hall, an Orca Green Machine helps cut down on landfill waste by decomposing food scraps. All dining facilities completely eliminated trays in 2014. On campus shuttles run on compressed natural gas, and students who want to use a healthy and green transportation option can use one of the 450 bicycles in the Yellow Bicycle Loan Program. The campus-wide recycling program went single stream in 2012.This increases engagement on campus by making recycling easier for everyone to participate. Among the school’s paper-saving initiatives, employees and students are required to utilize direct deposit for transactions and the campus phone directory is entirely online. TU’s “Earth Friendly Majors” include those in environmental policy, earth and environmental sciences, and geology with an environmental concentration.
