From the Bacone News Release / Information about admission, website information:
Bacone College is the nation’s oldest American Indian institution of higher learning and the oldest higher education institution in Oklahoma. Furthermore, Bacone is the most affordable university option for American Indian students in the State of Oklahoma. No institution of higher education has a longer standing connection to the education of American Indian people, then Bacone College!
In the summer of 2018, the university (under the leadership of new President Dr. Ferlin Clark; Navajo,) began the process of fully returning to the mission of genuine Indian education to prepare and empower the Indigenous populations of all tribal communities/nations throughout the United States.
Bacone has streamlined academic, athletic and club programs and ensured that all areas of the college are meeting the needs of Indian students, their tribes and families. Now is an incredible and important time to be a part of a renewed Bacone College!
We encourage you to go to www.bacone.edu and apply to the university!
