Northern Oklahoma College believes that a college education should be available to everyone. Through the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, the college prepares adults age 50 and older for fulfilling careers in nursing, social work and education for the adult learner who is facing the opportunities and challenges of leaving their current job and choosing retirement or a second career. Attend a Plus 50 Information Seminar on the first Tuesday in March, July and October each year. Learning is a lifelong process. Let Northern Oklahoma College Tonkawa, Enid or Stillwater prepare you for the next step. For more information, contact Plus 50 advisor April Heitfeld at 580.548.2322.
History: The Plus 50 program was started nationally in 2008 to help laid‐off workers get back to the labor force. It has expanded beyond workforce training and career development to include learning, enrichment and volunteering for the group often referred to as age‐less learners. Adult learners bring much experience to the classroom, but they also have many commitments beyond school. Some of you might be concerned about assuming the role of student.
