Oklahoma Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program

The Oklahoma Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program (OSLEP) is an intercollegiate academic program sponsored by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education open to students at all the public and private universities in Oklahoma. The OSLEP classes meet for 5 days.

The program allows eligible students to earn college credit by participating in one of a year-long series of five-day interdisciplinary seminars. All seminars are led by distinguished scholars invited from around the world to teach a select group of 20-25 students chosen from various colleges and disciplines. Cameron University is proud to be one of the nineteen universities in the state of Oklahoma which participate in OSLEP. If you are a sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student with a GPA of 3.0 or above we encourage you to apply for the seminar of your choice.

 

How to Apply

Eligible students must submit a formal application which consists of a completed application form, a writing sample, a current, unofficial transcript, and a recommendation from a faculty member.

For more information regarding the application process and other guidelines, visit OSLEP. Students are encouraged to apply early in the academic year so the hours can be included in your course load. If a class is full, a wait list is available.
