Current Threshold Students:

As we comply with the University’s safety efforts in combating COVID-19, we want to stress that we are still here to support you as strongly as ever. Out of an abundance of caution and for your safety as well as our own, here are the adjustments we have made for the Fall 2021 semester:

Advising: We will continue advising students in-person or remotely via Zoom, phone, or email, whichever method works best for you. Please contact your Threshold Advisor if you have questions or need to schedule an appointment.

Tutoring: We are currently finalizing our tutoring schedules and will let you know as soon they are available.

Printing: Contact your Threshold Advisor to schedule a time to print. For your safety, only 3 students will be allowed in the computer lab at a time, and our printing hours will be Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:30pm. Face masks will be STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to enter the suite and are GREATLY APPRECIATED while remaining in the office suite and computer lab.

Threshold Office Space: Again, for safety reasons MASKING IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED for all students, staff, and guests within the Project Threshold suite. Our suite will be open during regular business hours, but we will be taking steps to reduce or eliminate high-density gatherings within our space. Contact your Threshold Advisor if you have questions or concerns.

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.
