NOC Process Tech application deadline extended to March 31

 Northern Oklahoma College has announced an extension for this year’s applications to the Process Technology Program.

Persons interested in the Northern Oklahoma College Tonkawa Process Technology Program focused on the Refining and Processing Industries now have until March 31, 2023 to apply for the fall 2023 semester.  Only students who fill out the on-line application will be considered.

Program manager Frankie Wood-Black said the program is limited to 24 students.  Wood-Black added the program is available to anyone interested in Process Technology, but they must fill out the application for this program, due to its high demand.

The review process begins in April, and applicants will be notified of the review process.  The application may be found at . Once the program is filled for the fall semester, a waiting list will be maintained and individuals may be contacted prior to the beginning of the fall semester should an opening become available.

NOC also has a program designed for individuals seeking employment in the Renewable Energy Fields as well.  The Wind Technician program has been growing with many individuals finding employment prior to the completion of their degrees.  This two-year program does not require an application.  Dr. Wood-Black indicated that classes for this program also will be offered in the fall semester.

However, courses toward either the Process Technology and Wind programs are available during each semester.

Dr. Wood-Black said that the Introduction to Process Technology class does not require acceptance into the program and is available during the Early Summer Session beginning May 15, 2023, as well as other classes that can be applied to these degrees.

Please contact Dr. Wood-Black at or by calling 580-628-6440 if you would like more information about either of these programs.
