Did you know?
Your degree from UCO shows you have
received an educational transformation through
solid instruction in the discipline, leadership opportunities, service
learning opportunities, global and cultural competency, civic engagement
and undergraduate research and creative activities. Research has also
shown students successful in higher education tend to become more
open-minded, cultured, rational, and consistent while becoming less
authoritarian: traits that impact current and future generations (Rowley
and Hurtado, 2002).
according to the U.S. Census Bureau, over the course of a lifetime, high
school graduates earn an average of $1.2 million; associate's degree
holders earn about $1.6 million; and bachelor's degree holders earn
about $2.1 million. That is a difference of
$900,000 between a
high school degree and a college degree!

Central Oklahoma has over 2,200 faculty and staff ready to assist you in
