Shaping Lives for a Better Tomorrow

Student Support Services, also known as Project Threshold on the OU campus, is a Federally funded program. It is one of seven TRIO programs designed to serve students who meet one or more of the following criteria:

First generation - Neither parent received a four-year degree
Economically Disadvantaged - Based on federal guidelines
Disabled - With appropriate documentation

Academic Need

The program was originally established at the University of Oklahoma in 1970, but was funded by the U.S. Department of Education in 1971, and remains so to this day. Our primary mission is to increase retention and graduation rates of program participants. Project Threshold provides a personalized approach to delivering academic support services to individuals who may face barriers to academic success in their college careers.

Project Threshold has an open door policy. In the event that you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
