OK GEAR UP currently partners with 10 school districts and five regional colleges throughout the state to prepare nearly 12,000 middle and high school students for college success through college campus tours, ACT test preparation and testing, and college exploration and preparation courses. GEAR UP offers college access and financial aid information to students and families through awareness activities, including Oklahoma’s Promise and FAFSA completion assistance.
Once students arrive on one of GEAR UP’s partner college campuses, college coaches provide support to students in their transition into college. They connect with students to answer questions and share information to set students up for success.
And I’m from one of the 10 GEAR UP high schools.
During your freshman year at CU, you will be greeted with open arms. We are so glad you have chosen your new home at CU. You will be contacted by your GEAR UP College Coach Tiffany Morrow. As a GEAR UP student and freshman at CU, you will receive free college coaching.
What is college coaching?
Thanks to OK GEAR UP, scheduled monthly one-on-one coaching sessions are offered for your personal development and success during your first year of college. These meetings take place in person, over the phone, or virtually. You can reach out at any time for support. Your college coach is here to help you be successful and achieve your goals. There is no cost to you!
Get the most out of college
College coaching can benefit all types of students and is FREE. Working with a coach can help you become better at what you want to do, in and out of the classroom. A college coach can help you get the most out of college, plan your career path, and finish on time.

Meet your college coach
Welcome To Cameron University!
My name is Tiffany Morrow and I am the GEAR UP College Coach for Cameron University. I want to personally welcome you to Cameron University. You belong here and you are going to do great things!
What is a College Coach?
- My purpose here on Cameron’s campus is simply to get to know each of the GEAR UP students individually and be a valuable resource for you. I want your college experience to be the best it possibly can be. I am here to help you achieve your goals, overcome obstacles, and support you on your new journey as a college student.
- My goal is to meet with each of you at least once a month during the academic school year to check in and see how you are doing. Our meeting may only average 15-20 minutes, however they can also be longer or shorter, based on your individual needs and wants.
I understand that college can be an overwhelming time and that having a College Coach may seem like a foreign concept. The more we meet, the more you’ll understand what it’s all about. I am an advocate for students from GEAR UP schools on Cameron’s campus and my primary goal is to see each of you succeed and earn your degree.
I graduated as a first generation college graduate from Cameron University in May 2022 with a BA in English. I am continuing my education at Cameron University as a graduate student in the Master of Education program. I now work in higher education and my career goal is to help students obtain a post secondary education. I live near the Wichita Mountain wildlife refuge with my husband and two spoiled bulldogs, Hoss and Bella.
I enjoy traveling, painting, fishing, reading, and making arts and crafts.
I am very excited to get to know my GEAR UP students here at Cameron University and help each of you to transition into your freshman year and beyond!
Please feel free to to stop by my office in Room #311 of North Shepler tower, email me, call or text anytime.
