An inclusive postsecondary education program for students with intellectual disability, Opportunity Orange Scholars will welcome its first cohort of students in August 2022.

Expanding the Cowboy family

by offering a comprehensive transition program
Opportunity Orange Scholars is designed for young adults between the ages of 18 and 26 with intellectual disability and do not meet OSU’s degree-seeking admission criteria. Students admitted into the Opportunity Orange Scholars program can pursue a two-year, non-degree academic certificate in Career and Community Studies with an option for an additional two-year, non-degree advanced academic certificate in Community Living and Engagement. Students will be fully immersed in the OSU experience, as they live and learn on campus. Opportunity Orange Scholars is desognated by the U.S. Department of Education as a comprehensive transition and postsecondary education program.

Enriching the OSU community

by building on our land-grant mission and commitment to diversity
Opportunity Orange Scholars will enrich the OSU community and enhance the lives of students with intellectual disability by promoting lifelong learning and advancing knowledge and skills necessary for competitive employment and interdependent living. The program will provide a college path for students who currently have no option of attending college in Oklahoma due to a lack of programs available to meet their support needs.
