Introduction

Connors State College is a two-year state institution with two locations in Muskogee and one in Warner, OK. Though its foundations were firmly set in agricultural education, today this is a college with programs in many other fields. The college celebrated its centennial in 2009 and continues to expand while retaining its excellence in fields as diverse as livestock judging and nursing.

As a state college, the school has a history older than Oklahoma itself. While statehood was on the horizon, framers of the Oklahoma constitution agreed it was essential to set aside land for training and education in agriculture. Once the word got out, an intense competition arose between the cities of Warner and Muskogee. Even though Muskogee had the early edge, Warner pulled off a last minute coup and had the school planned for their town. One hundred and sixty acres were included for the campus.

Today, the school has gone beyond its agricultural roots and offers degrees in other fields, along with the opportunity for students to utilize distance and online learning.

Academics

Students can pursue an associate’s degree and transfer to a 4-year institution to complete their studies. The college has maintained a focus on agricultural pursuits and offers AS and AAS degrees in Equine Technology as well. In addition, the roster of liberal arts courses leading to the AA degree includes English, Journalism, Art, Humanities and Music. Associate degrees in Business Administration are offered alongside courses in Computer Information Systems. The other academic departments include Biology, Math and Science, Child Development, Psychology, Social Sciences, Health and Physical Education, and Nursing.

The Nursing Department began offering classes in Warner but has since switched its main location to Muskogee and now accepts about 50 students per semester. The Nursing School is accredited by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing and the National League of Nursing Accreditation Commission.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

Admissions are open to students with high school diplomas and also to those who are past the age of eighteen. The application process can be handled entirely online or with a paper form posted on the school website. In addition, students can apply in person at Warner or Muskogee Campus admissions offices. High school or GED diplomas must be submitted, as well as the transcripts of any previous colleges or universities attended.

Financial Aid

Students hoping to attend and receive financial aid are encouraged to fill out the FAFSA online and start the process. Federal Pell Grants may be awarded to students in need, along with supplementary grants. In addition to grants which do not have to be repaid to the federal government, student loans with beneficial interest terms may be secured. Once college coursework is completed and the grace period expires, payments are expected. Work-study programs offer students the opportunity to work in order to help defray the costs of tuition and are supported by the government.

Many scholarships are also available to students hoping to enroll. Dozens of individual scholarships are offered by the Connor State Development Foundation – a full list of them has been posted on the school website. Criteria vary from academic standing to programs being studied. The President’s Leadership Class (PLC) Scholarship and Regents’ Scholarship are two other opportunities for prospective students.
