A 2014 report released by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education identified what is termed the state’s “Complete College America” goal: “to increase the number of degrees and certificates earned […] by an average of 1,700 per year, resulting in a 67% percent increase by 2023.” Endorsed by the governor, this mission was in part inspired by the projection that nearly 70% of all Oklahoma jobs will require some form of postsecondary education by the year 2020.

The state has recognized that one of the best ways to continue to award degrees to its residents is through flexible programs, namely online education opportunities. And with a host of organizations leading the charge, including the state’s membership in the SREB (a regional online agreement we’ll explore below), the premier public and private colleges in Oklahoma have never been better equipped to provide online learning opportunities.
