Life Long Learning: Unabridged Program

Division of Life Long LearningAs a part of TU’s Continuing Education Network, Kendall College of Arts & Sciences promotes both personal and professional enrichment opportunities. Our courses act as a community outreach program to educate and enrich the minds of the greater Tulsa area. The unabridged program offers anyone with an inquiring mind the unique opportunity to audit rewarding undergraduate classes at TU but at a fraction of the standard tuition.

Interested students will experience our traditional academic environment, our intimate classroom organizations, and the invaluable mentorship of our university’s world-renowned professors. If you have lifelong scholarly aspirations, this may be the perfect experience for you. Since a course is audited, no credits or transcripts are recorded, and no tests or papers are required. An aspiring scholar need only enroll, attend the class, listen to discussions (participation is controlled by the instructor), complete the readings and enjoy!

Explore the list of courses that are currently offered for unabridged students. They are published separately from the regular schedule of courses, and the list is updated each semester. Students should not contact faculty members directly to ask permission to enroll in their courses. Unabridged students will be allowed to enroll after traditional degree-seeking students.
