.- St. Gregory’s 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 City’s Mercy Hospital.
Classes will meet in Mercy’s conference center, located in the McAuley Building just off Memorial Road. SGU has plans to begin bachelor’s degree classes sometime this spring in Oklahoma City.
“Just four years ago, we began with an initial enrollment of 15 in our bachelor’s program,” said Jean Thornbrugh, Ph.D., dean of SGU’s College for Working Adults. “We 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. We’re excited about what’s ahead.”
St. Gregory’s, the state’s oldest institution of higher learning, initiated its College for Working Adults in 2003 in Tulsa and expanded to the school’s traditional campus in Shawnee in 2006.
SGU’s CWA is designed for working professionals, providing accelerated evening classes – one night a week – for busy adults who need a practical option for their education. Because of its unique, non-traditional format, CWA students are considered “full time,” making them eligible for full-time state and federal financial aid.
