Oklahoma School of Science & Mathematics (OSSM)

OSSM coursework is eligible for college credit due to the unique, intensive nature of the school.  OSSM offers a high-level curriculum delivered by faculty possessing graduate degrees in the content area of instruction and has highly competitive admission criteria.  OSSM has a legislatively mandated statewide mission, and a legislatively prescribed board of trustees which requires scientists, mathematicians, and those who hold graduate degrees as members. Institutional faculty shall annually review and approve OSSM prior learning credit.  All other Oklahoma public and private high schools are not included in this provision.  These high schools may utilize AP and concurrent enrollment opportunities, similar to the OSSM satellite campuses connected to a school district.
