.- St. Gregoryâs University announced this week that its rapidly expanding College for Working Adults (CWA) will open a third campus. Business degree classes at the associate level will kick off Tuesday at Oklahoma Cityâs Mercy Hospital.
Classes will meet in Mercyâs conference center, located in the McAuley Building just off Memorial Road. SGU has plans to begin bachelorâs degree classes sometime this spring in Oklahoma City.
âJust four years ago, we began with an initial enrollment of 15 in our bachelorâs program,â said Jean Thornbrugh, Ph.D., dean of SGUâs College for Working Adults. âWe now have more than 350 students and offer degrees at the associate, bachelor and graduate levels. We anticipate the same growth pattern in Oklahoma City. Weâre excited about whatâs ahead.â
St. Gregoryâs, the stateâs oldest institution of higher learning, initiated its College for Working Adults in 2003 in Tulsa and expanded to the schoolâs traditional campus in Shawnee in 2006.
SGUâs CWA is designed for working professionals, providing accelerated evening classes â one night a week â for busy adults who need a practical option for their education. Because of its unique, non-traditional format, CWA students are considered âfull time,â making them eligible for full-time state and federal financial aid.
