Goodwell, Okla.DID YOU KNOW that Oklahoma Panhandle State University will be celebrating its 100th birthday next year?
OPSU was created by an act of the Oklahoma State Legislature in 1909 as Pan-Handle Agricultural Institute offering secondary agricultural education for the Panhandle area. Next year, the school (known as Oklahoma Panhandle State University since 1974) will be celebrating the Centennial Year and a great many special activities are planned.

DID YOU KNOW that the words CONVENIENCE and SERVICE are very big parts of the OPSU philosophy?
OPSU offers a huge and constantly growing list of classes that will fit the needs of both traditional and non-traditional students, as well as the distance learner. Classes are offered at convenient times for all students, and counselors and advisors are always prepared to work with learners to accommodate their schedules as much as possible. Classes are offered on the Goodwell campus, at the Guymon Classroom, and “OPSU Online” continues to grow at a rapid pace.

The administration at OPSU also firmly believes in being service oriented. The offices of the Registrar, Admissions, and High School and Community Relations are all made up of trained professionals who will spend the time it takes to assist students.

Placement rates for OPSU graduates are close to or at 100% in each and every one of the five schools that make up the University (Agriculture; Business and Technology; Education; Liberal Arts; and the School of Science, Mathematics and Nursing).

OPSU has the lowest tuition rate of any four year public college in the state of Oklahoma.
