Guests may come to campus for scheduled meetings and similar needs. Before entering campus buildings, guests must have their temperature checked and complete a brief questionnaire, which is the same protocol for our staff.
Guests must wear a mask during their time in campus buildings and practice social distancing – maintaining 6-feet of distance from other people and avoiding physical contact – while on campus.
For your convenience, we still encourage everyone to conduct business remotely, via email, phone call or video conference meeting – not all staff members are on campus every day. Unscheduled walk-in appointments are not allowed.

Returning in the Fall
We have received several questions about a very important subject: what will the fall semester look like? And while we would love to say that everything is going to be perfect and students will return to campus as normal, the real answer is unfortunately not that simple – at least not yet.
Currently, Francis Tuttle leadership is considering the many factors that play into students and staff returning to normal, face-to-face learning in the fall. Everything possible step will be taken to ensure students can return to a safe, healthy learning environment, as that is our top priority.
The ideal situation is that we can offer the face-to-face, person-to-person, hands-on learning experience that makes our programs and classrooms so unique. But we must also prepare for the possibility that remote learning — whether for a temporary or extended amount of time — could return. These are unprecedented, uncertain times, and we strive to rise above them with the same ingenuity, creativity and spirit of innovation that our students show year after year.
There are several plans of action being developed for what learning at Francis Tuttle will look like on and after August 17. Please visit this page throughout the summer and monitor our social media pages for updates.
To continue serving the community, we have provided a list of resources that may be helpful during this time:
- The COVID-19 Emergency Grant for Adult Students is available for students who qualify, thanks to funding through the CARES Act. Visit the page to learn more about the grant and apply. You can also view the Emergency Grant Report to read the facts on how this grant is being used.
- State Department of Health COVID-19 webpage, for updated and verified information on the pandemic in Oklahoma
- Job Connection and OKJobMatch, for those seeking employment or employees
- Oklahoma Employment Security Commission, for those who must file for unemployment
- CDC health guidelines for information on how to avoid contracting the virus, what to do if you think you may have it, and the best ways to protect your mental health from and anxiety and feelings associated with self-isolation
Please continue to check this page for updates and additional resources. You can find more information on the Francis Tuttle response to COVID-19 below.
Admissions and advisement
The Career Planning Center (CPC) is currently providing services remotely. Staff members are available through email as well as virtual appointments. We want to continue to help you make your career development, training, and enrollment decisions.
Students can schedule virtual advisement appointments by emailing your advisor. Include your name, program/campus, phone number, and availability in the message.
Prospective students seeking general admission and enrollment information, and any student seeking more information about virtual appointments and connecting with CPC, can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Staff returning to campus
Francis Tuttle is committed to ensuring staff can return to campus in the safest way possible. Staff will work on campus only part of the week, splitting their time between on-campus and remote work. This is to help maintain social distancing on campus.
Every staff member will check-in at designated areas and will have their temperature taken before they are allowed inside buildings. Masks will be provided for staff and must be worn at all times that staff are inside campus buildings.
Staff will also clean their work stations both before they begin work and at the end of the day.
More information for campus guests/visitors and the date that students will be allowed back on campus for both Career Training Programs and Lifelong Learning Classes will be announced at a future date.
