Who We AreHelping students realize their intellectual and personal potential.
The Honors College at Oklahoma State University is a unique, immersive educational
opportunity. We are committed to a high-quality, enhanced intellectual experience
for students from diverse backgrounds. The Honors College provides a living/learning
environment that fosters a strong sense of community. We seek to challenge students
in dynamic ways, encourage non-traditional learning experiences, and support students'
personal and professional development.
Forget your high school AP classes. This isn't like that.
Our goal is to provide students all of the benefits of a small, liberal arts education,
while also offering the vast resources of a large, land-grant institution within the
Big XII. Honors classes are designed to be engaging and discussion-based, and our
top teaching faculty are encouraged to present material in new and interesting ways.
The classroom can be an exciting place when full of motivated and intellectually curious
Honors College students enjoy a number of fringe benefits for their participation,
including priority enrollment, small class sizes, the option to live in honors housing,
additional scholarship opportunities and more.
