The University of Tulsa Graduate Bulletin is published annually as a guide to curricula, course descriptions, costs, University policies, and other information. In keeping with established procedures, the University may change programs of study, academic requirements, faculty, curricula, course descriptions, costs, policies, the academic calendar, or other information without prior notice. The University reserves the right to correct factual errors whenever they are discovered.

The University of Tulsa is firmly committed to providing equal opportunity for all our community members, irrespective of a person’s background. In all its activities, the University condemns and prohibits in the strongest terms the adverse treatment of any member of the TU community motivated by a bias against, or hatred toward, individuals or groups based on their characteristics such as age, ancestry, color, creed, disability or handicap, gender identity, genetic information, marital or family status, national origin, political belief, pregnancy, pregnancy-related conditions, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status (hereinafter “protected status”).
Seeking to foster an environment where free expression and speech flourish, the University finds discrimination only in acts where a person is treated adversely based on their protected status. Such an act occurs when it has a substantial, unreasonable and materially negative impact on a person’s interaction with University programs, activities, opportunities or benefits. Mere minor or trivial actions or conduct, even those considered generally offensive and controversial, cannot be considered adverse treatment. The University is committed to the idea that this type of discomfort and exchange is critical to the educational experience. It is this participation in a strong and vibrant marketplace of ideas that makes TU a thought leader in our city, state, nation and global society.
The University’s full non-discrimination and harassment policy can be found here. Questions regarding implementation of this policy may be addressed to the University’s Equal Opportunity Officer, Kathleen Smith, 104 McClure Hall, 918-631-2321. Requests for accommodation of disabilities may be addressed to the University’s 504 Coordinator, Dr. Tawny Rigsby, 104 McClure Hall, 918-631-2315. To ensure availability of an interpreter, five to seven days’ notice is needed; 48 hours is recommended for all other accommodations.
