Higher education opportunities? Muskogee has them.
The Muskogee Area Educational Consortium, made up of education representatives from all sectors of Muskogee County, was created to provide greater benefits to students. Included in the consortium are Muskogee Public Schools, Northeastern State University, Bacone College, Connors State College and Indian Capital Technology Center.
Meeting regularly for more than 10 years, the consortium has made processes such as designing curriculum and transferring credits much easier. One of its members, strongly dedicated to benefiting its students, is Northeastern State University. Its Muskogee campus has been offering undergraduate and graduate courses in areas of education, business, general studies, nursing and more since 1993.
To accommodate working adults, the campus offers convenient evening, nighttime and online classes. Another institution offering classes at nontraditional times to students is Indian Capital Technology Center. The school’s Muskogee campus offers programs for high school students as well as daytime programs in a wide range of industries including hospitality and lodging management, air conditioning, and culinary arts.
Connors State College works closely with business partners to make sure it continues to offer classes in occupations where there is a demand for jobs. Its innovative program, Education Stimulus Program, allows qualifying residents who have lost their jobs to take up to nine hours of classes tuition-free to help them return to the workforce as soon as possible.
Bacone College also has programs to meet the needs of students. The college’s affiliation with the International Learning Styles Network gives students an opportunity to better understand and capitalize on their personal styles of learning. Its Student Support Services TRIO program provides students with extensive tutoring and academic mentoring.
