Below are vaccine incentive details and frequently asked questions for both students and employees at Northern Oklahoma College.

The health of our students and employees in our NOC Family is of critical importance. As the cases decreased this summer many people dropped their guard to COVID-19, although we are learning that the variants have increased transmission rates and that people that are testing positive is back to the November 2020 levels. We have learned that people that are vaccinated are less likely to become infected, and if infected the severity of their illness is greatly reduced.

NOC wants to help keep you healthy, keep you learning in the classrooms, and allow you to stay active in college athletics and activities. We can best accomplish this by having as many people vaccinated as possible at all NOC campuses. We are incentivizing this by creating a COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive Contest.

The goal of NOC COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive Contest is to substantially increase the number of fully vaccinated people who are teaching, working, learning, socializing, and living on our campuses. Below are vaccine incentive details and frequently asked questions for both students and employees at Northern Oklahoma College.


Get Going with Gateway will be virtual. Emails were sent to incoming freshmen announcing the change. Incoming freshmen should also check their email for instructions on accessing the virtual orientation and for an email from their advisors about a zoom meeting.

Important Things Students Need to Know for Fall 2021 Semester at NOC

We look forward to having you on our college campus this fall! I wanted to share a few important items with you before the semester starts. In the coming weeks, additional communications will be sent regarding the fall semester.

•In order for NOC to preserve the quality of instruction and to meet the budget needs for the coming year, the NOC Regents approved a 2.8% increase in tuition and mandatory fees at the June 16 board meeting. This proposed increase will be presented to the State Regents for approval on June 23. The change, if approved, will take effect in the Fall 2021 semester and will amount to an increase in resident tuition and fees of $60.00 per semester or $120.00 for the academic year for students on the Tonkawa and Enid campuses who complete 30 credit hours. The NOC/OSU Gateway Program academic service fees will be increased $195.00 per semester or $390.00 for the academic year (based on 30 credit hours) to coincide with OSU rates, as approved by the State Regents in February 2021. Please see our website for the updated cost comparison chart reflecting the pricing structure for each location at which NOC provides classes.

•Fall 2021 tuition and fees must be paid on or before September 15, 2021. Financial Aid, scholarships, full payment or a payment plan needs to be in place to avoid a 1.5% monthly (19.56APY) finance charge. NOTE: Student account statements will not be mailed. To see your invoice, log in to Billing on myNOC Portal to view/pay Bursar Account or see our website for more information.

NOC Regents announce next president of Northern Oklahoma College

The Northern Oklahoma College Board of Regents met April 26 in a special board meeting at NOC Tonkawa. On the agenda was an Executive Session for “Review and discussion in open session and possible action to enter into executive session pursuant to 25 O.S.2011, §307(B)(1) to interview and discuss the employment, hiring, or appointment (including compensation) of candidates Dr. Clark Harris, Dr. Wayne McMillin, and Dr. Herbert Riedel for the position of President for Northern Oklahoma College.”

After a four-hour Executive Session and upon re-entering Open Session, the Board had opportunity for “discussion and possible vote on matters discussed in Executive Session, including the possible hiring or appointment (including compensation), or continued search, for the position of President for Northern Oklahoma College.”

The NOC Board of Regents Chair Jodi Cline delivered the following statement, “I am pleased to announce that the NOC Board of Regents has asked Dr. Clark Harris to assume the position of President of Northern Oklahoma College, pending final documents. He is expected to officially take over the role of president at the beginning of NOC’s next fiscal year beginning July 1. We welcome Dr. Harris’ leadership as we enter the next chapter of Northern Oklahoma College’s history. He brings strong leadership skills and years of experience that will help Northern position itself for the future.”

According to Regent and Selection Committee Chair Jodi Cline, Dr. Harris was chosen from a national pool of highly qualified candidates.

“I would like to extend my appreciation to the entire College community for your participation and feedback at the recent presidential town hall meetings,” Cline added. “Everyone’s input was reviewed and greatly valued by the Board. I would also like to express my appreciation to the Presidential Search Committee for their time, dedication, and thoughtful work on behalf of Northern Oklahoma College.”

Dr. Harris stated, “It is a great honor to be selected to serve as the next president of Northern Oklahoma College. I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead the College and to expand on the good work being done on the unique campuses. It will be a privilege to work with the great people of Northern Oklahoma College and community members as we look to the future and work toward transforming students’ lives and enriching our communities.”

Celebrating and recognizing our very own Diana Watkins!


NOC Regent Jami Groendyke shares who inspires her as we celebrate Womens' History Month.

Since March of 1987, Americans have been celebrating Women’s History Month- a celebration that grew out of a Sonoma, CA school district’s celebration of women back in the 1970s. Despite this, I have never taken the time to stop and think about it. When first presented with the option to write about an inspiring woman in my life, I struggled to land on just one. Researching this national celebration revealed numerous stories of women who have changed the world: Florence Nightingale, Harriet Tubman, Marie Curie, Sandra Day O'Connor, Maya Angelou, and thousands of others. While all of these women are inspirational to me, none of them felt like the right one to showcase, so rather than talking about one woman, I want to celebrate women.

For me, I am most inspired by the women who lift each other up- those who compliment genuinely and listen without judgement. Women like this are all around us, and if we are blessed, they are our friends and neighbors.

These understanding women are therapists who help others untangle their lives and have patience for their families at the end of the day. They are women who support their husbands’ dreams of becoming doctors while raising their children to be independent. These are marvelous women who raise well rounded, kind, and inclusive children in a safe, loving home because they want a better childhood for them than they had themselves. These are astonishing women who had babies young and worked at home to give their kids the best start before they pursued their own educational dreams. These are strong military mothers who raise their children as single parents during their husband’s deployment. These are remarkable women who teach all day yet still have the energy and focus to teach their own children at night. These brilliant women are first generation college graduates who work to provide the best educational opportunities for their kids. These unbelievable women are first generation Americans who raise smart and hardworking children proud of their heritage.

Millions of inspiring women are all around us, nurturing and loving and making the world a better place. I am inspired by them continually, and I am blessed to call them my friends.


Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture, and society that is observed annually in the month of March. As part of our celebration of Women’s History Month at NOC, the institutional diversity committee asked some familiar faces from NOC to share about a woman in their life who has inspired them.

The committee asked Dr. Cheryl Evans, NOC’s first female president, to start off the celebration by sharing her thoughts regarding diversity and women in leadership.

What challenges did you encounter a decade ago as a woman taking on a role that had traditionally been held by a man?

“There were challenges, but I don’t think it had anything to do with gender really. I think it’s a different style of leadership that people maybe weren’t accustomed to that was perhaps more collaborative. I don’t mind taking a little more time to make some critical decisions and listening to different stakeholders, because everything is so interconnected and we try to avoid unintended consequences by thinking about repercussions for the entire institution instead of just one site or department. I think once everyone knows each other and adapts to a new style of leadership people worked well together toward common goals to help students succeed.”

Do you think that some of your leadership style came from the things you had done in the past before you reached this position?

“I was a nontraditional student when I completed my degree. I was thirty. My first job was as an adjunct faculty member then I became a faculty member and then I became a division chair. Not an unusual path, but maybe just the timing in my life. I kind of got the best of both worlds. I was a traditional college student and then I was a nontraditional college student and we owned a business in between. I think that does give you a different perspective. I think it carries over into working with employees as well. Work is only one part of an individual’s life. We want them to be happy and whole in all aspects of their life.”

What techniques did you find most helpful in overcoming the challenges that came with serving as the president at NOC?

“The first thing I did was try to listen to everybody. I literally made appointments with every division and went around and sat down with employees from different groups. I kind of continued that out throughout my tenure here. About every other year I would do listening sessions and spend weeks scheduling and sitting down. I think hearing everybody, although we can’t always do everything everybody wants, informs my decisions and gives me a better perspective of the institution.”

What lessons would you like to share regarding breaking down barriers for women?

“I think mentoring is a really important way to help people who are different from you or other young women. It was kind of humbling and surprising when my retirement announcement was made that I heard from students and co-workers from nearly thirty years ago. These are people that you just helped by doing what you do and they sent really nice messages. I never saw myself in that role necessarily, but I know people helped me in that way as well.
Teachers make all the difference. I think in my life, even in high school my business teacher Loretta Sharp was one of mine. She was there at 6:30 every morning. I was working on extra-curricular activities and she would say “Come on up and help or do your work.” As I was working with her, she wasn’t afraid to say, “You can do better. Try again.” Her input and investment in me raised my expectations of myself. I think just her positive reinforcement clicked with me. Not that I didn’t get that other places, but the first time it registered I think. You put in a little more effort and if you try a little harder, or even if you do it again that you’ll be happier in the end. Role models are important. We need to strive to employ people who bring different experiences, talents, and perspectives. That’s the only way we are going to get there. We just have to keep doing the next right thing and helping others. I’ve learned from my students over the years. They teach us as too. When you listen to them and the challenges they face, it will really open your eyes.”

This month the diversity committee is asking individuals associated with NOC to share about a woman who inspires them. As a woman who has inspired many at NOC, we wanted you to begin our series. Tell us about a woman who has inspired you.

“I am just proud of the work that women do. There’s a lot of women in leadership in division chairs and on executive council, sponsors of organizations and things like that. I strongly believe that you don’t have to have a title to be a leader. You just need to inspire people to come with you to do the work that you are passionate about. A lot of women go unnoticed even when they are doing the work and they are leading, but they are doing what they believe in for all the right reasons.”

“For me, I think it’s the women close to me in all seasons of my life, they’ve weaved in and out of my world helping me. For example, the work ethic that was modeled by Loretta Sharp as I mentioned earlier. Women that I see volunteering in the community. I could literally have pages so I am really hesitant to name names. I have just been so fortunate that so many women have touched my life. I have many strong women in my family. Over the years, I’ve developed a close group of professional female friends who I might only get to interact with every month or so, but these women help each other whenever possible and I’ve appreciated them in my life too. Higher education is blessed with so many women making a difference at our institution and across the state. It is good to see more female presidents in Oklahoma now than ten years ago too. To be fair, I have had great role models in male leadership too. I know we are talking about Women’s History Month, but I think you take the good from everybody. And also, I learned from poor role models as well. You just keep your eyes open and look for the good and try to do good. Nobody is perfect. I’m not perfect. Anybody who has worked with me knows that, but I think you are motivated by trying to do what you believe is right with the resources and time that you have.”
