Oklahoma Student Preparation

College readiness is more than academic preparation. The aspirations of students and their families to achieve a college degree require guidance and support beginning at an early age, not just the senior year of high school. The Student Preparation Office of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education helps PK-12 educators and parents effectively prepare students for college readiness. Through online resources, regional workshops, on-site training and conferences, the student preparation team provides educators, parents and students with the resources necessary to ensure all Oklahoma students and their families are college ready.
