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
Designed for young adults between the ages of 18 and 26 who have intellectual disability and do not meet OSU’s degree-seeking admission criteria, students admitted into the Opportunity Orange Scholars academic program can pursue a two-year, non-degree Certificate in Career and Community Studies with an additional, non-degree advanced Certificate in Community Living and Engagement. Students will be fully immersed in the OSU experience, as they live and learn on campus.

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 independent living. The program will provide a college path for students who currently have no option of attending college in Oklahoma due to the level of support they require.
