Rogers State University
A regional university with more that 3,700 students, Rogers State University provides the complete college experience where students can live on campus, participate in student activities, or enjoy the thrill of NCAA Division II athletics—all while earning a degree from one of RSU’s many high-quality academic programs. RSU offers bachelor’s and associate degree programs in Oklahoma’s top 10 fastest growing industries. These include traditional programs such as communications, humanities, business administration, criminal administration, applied technology, and nursing, as well as emerging fields such as an Esports degree and environmental conservation.
Many students from northeast Oklahoma who plan to attend medical school complete their undergraduate studies through RSU’s program in medical/molecular biology. RSU’s nursing program produces students who consistently score better than the state and national average on the RN licensure exam. RSU also offers graduate education through its master of business administration that utilizes its signature strengths in accounting, entrepreneurship, management, and sport management disciplines.
In addition to its main Claremore campus, RSU offers conveniently-located campuses in Bartlesville and Pryor (at the MidAmerica industrial Park) alongside its nationally recognized online program that provides classes that meet any schedule. RSU is also the only public four-year university in the Tulsa metro with on-campus housing.
Hillcat athletics compete as members of the NCAA Division II in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, and track and field, as well as competitive cheer and dance.
The university consistently ranks among the nation’s leaders for graduates who earn diplomas with the least amount of debt. In fact, last year, almost half of RSU’s graduating class earned their degree without student debt, thanks to RSU’s affordable tuition combined with private and public student aid packages.
RSU also operates its own television and radio stations from the Claremore campus. As the only full-powered public television station licensed to a public university in Oklahoma, RSU Public TV provides educational, cultural, and general interest programming to an audience of 1.2 million viewers in northeastern Oklahoma and the Tulsa metropolitan area. RSU Radio (91.3FM) is a student-run college radio station that also features specialty programming throughout the week for every taste in music.
RSU and RSU Public TV partnered to offer RSU Works (rsuworks.com), featuring online workforce training options to help individuals, businesses, and professional organizations provide job readiness for Oklahomans, earn skill certifications for current or future employees, and boost workforce development efforts statewide. The program centers around an online learning platform where individuals can complete skills training, industry certification, or personal enrichment through online and onsite courses, including industry certification and career prep programs.
