OSUIT's recognition as No. 1 in Oklahoma for associate degree programs and No. 8 in the state for bachelor's degree programs highlights the system-wide land-grant mission and is central to OSUIT's efforts to make higher education attainable and relevant to Oklahomans.

Rooted in expanding access to education, OSU's system-wide land grant initiative focuses on providing practical, affordable, and relevant learning opportunities to Oklahomans and beyond.

The ranking process by UniversityHQ is a reliable and objective tool designed to help students make one of the most important decisions: selecting a college. Data is gathered using the most reliable sources possible, acknowledging that much of the college experience is subjective and difficult to quantify. The goal is to provide a fact-based view to assist students with their decisions, ensuring they can confidently make their choices.

Through an emphasis on hands-on, applied learning, OSUIT produces real-world skills and an industry-driven curriculum that prepares graduates for immediate entry into the workforce while continuously adapting programs to meet industry needs.
