Northeastern State University (NSU) was founded as the Cherokee National Female Seminary in 1846. Its history as a state institution however, began in 1909 when the said seminary was purchased by the Oklahoma legislature and created the Northeastern State Normal School. It officially became known by its present name in 1985.
NSU is comprised of three campuses- its main campus in Tahlequah and two other campuses located in Broken Arrow and Muskogee. The main campus’ official address is 600 N. Grand Avenue, Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Nestled at the foot of the Ozark Mountains, the Tahlequah campus combines rich history with modern technology. Easy access to entertainment, shopping, dining and arts venues is provided because of the campus’ proximity to Tulsa.
There are almost 10,000 students enrolled with NSU’s various programs. This number includes undergraduate, graduate, full-time and part-time students. Ninety-five percent of undergraduate classes have less than 50 students while sixty-four percent of freshmen students live on campus. Standard undergraduate tuition and fees for Oklahoma residents cost $ 138.50 per credit while graduate programs cost $ 169.55 per credit. Non-residents pay $ 341.50 or $ 399.55 per credit for undergraduate or graduate program, respectively.
