The university doesn't have a date in mind for when it will close the West Oklahoma City Learning Center, Rauzon said. University officials will develop that plan after speaking with students enrolled at the site about their plans for completing their degrees. About 30 students are enrolled at that location.
No students are enrolled in classroom-based courses at the Owasso site, he said, so that location will be closed fairly quickly. Students have used the location as a kind of student union, meeting with learning teams or using the computers for coursework.
Rauzon said the closures represent a shift in the university's student population. About 70 percent of the university's enrollment is online, he said. While that population of students is robust, he said, it creates less demand for classroom space.
Closing unused or underused locations allows the university to focus more of its resources on its online offerings, he said.
