Other Helpful Information for Tulsa Students
We strongly suggest you bring some form of transportation, either a car, truck or motorcycle. Oklahoma Law requires that anyone operating a motor vehicle must have a license and carry proof of insurance.
If you are over age 18, it is very difficult and expensive to obtain a drivers license in the State of Oklahoma. It is recommended you obtain and maintain your drivers license in your home state prior to leaving.
FOR YOUR APARTMENT
Housing fees and first month’s rent are due prior to moving in.
Linens – you will need to bring sheets, pillows, towels and blankets. To keep your expenses down, bring things you already own. Family and friends may help you with these items.
Dishes – bring a small set of dishes, glasses, silverware and a few pots and pans for yourself. Don’t forget to bring a can opener. Remember, your roomates will be bringin their own items so don’t bring too much.
Radio and Television – if you have these items you may want to bring them. Housing does not provide any electronic equipment.
Other items – don’t forget your alarm clock. You may also want to bring a vacuum, broom and dustpan.
Don’t forget to bring your equipment. Remember, No firearms (including paintball guns) or weapons of any kind are allowed on campus or in student housing.
HOW MUCH MONEY SHOULD YOU BRING FOR PERSONAL EXPENSES
Personal expenses will include such things as gas for your car, food, entertainment or any other miscellaneous expenditures. Students in “student housing” will already know what money is required for housing when they arrive. Married students will need to bring enough to pay rent, apartment deposits, utilitiy deposits and any other expense necessary to secure living accomodations. These amounts can vary greatly, so pre-planning is necessary. Remember, personal expenses are in addition to housing costs. Refer to the New Student Information brochure for further suggestions.
BOOKS AND TOOLS
Books and tools may be purchased from Spartan’s bookstore. You received a list of tools when you first made application. If you have any tools on the list, bring them. To keep start up expenses low, most stduents purchase tools as they need them throughout their program. Remember, flight students must pay their $3000.00 flight tuition pre-payment prior to starting classes.
GETTING A JOB IN TULSA
Spartan students have been an excellent recruiting source for Tulsa employers since 1928. Many Tulsa businesses have come to rely on Spartan students as full and part-time employees. Consequently, our Student Employment Service receives new requests for student applications daily. There is no charge to the student or the employer for this service. Be sure to bring your Social Security Card with you. By law, employers are required to see two forms of identification. Also, don’t forget to bring an up-to-date resume and letters of recommendation from past employers.
