Scholars Workshop

On August 1, you should have received an invitation in your OU email account from the address "OU Canvas" with a subject line of "Course Invitation."  Unfortunately, we have been experiencing some technical difficulties, so if you did not receive a Canvas invitation in your OU email, please login to and you should be able to accept the workshop invitation directly.  If you are still not able to access the workshop, please email your OU Scholars advisor ASAP so that we can resolve any issues.  This is a required component of your scholarship and must be completed prior to midnight on August 31st.  If you do not complete the online workshop by August 31st, you will be penalized one semester of early enrollment.  Please note - you have not officially completed the OU Scholars Workshop requirement until you have submitted your answers to the quiz!
