HIGHER EDUCATION

Graduation
The number of degrees conferred varies not only among research universities, regional universities and community colleges but also among degree types. In 2010, 8,419 students graduated with an associate degree. Most of those two-year degrees were conferred at community colleges, but some associate degrees were also conferred by regional universities, including Cameron University, Langston University, Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Rogers State University and Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

Oklahoma public institutions conferred 15,677 bachelor's degrees in 2010.  Almost all of these degrees were conferred by the research and regional universities, although a very small number of Bachelor of Science degrees in technology are awarded by the two-year technical branch campuses.
