Programs

OIC accepts students from age 16 years and above. Courses may be offered at no or low cost to the student dependent upon contract restrictions. Services are provided to citizens residing throughout Oklahoma, Cleveland, Logan and Canadian counties.

The novelty of our programs lie in their self-paced format. Students are evaluated based solely on their specific needs. Utilizing a variety of testing tools (such as the TABE, CASAS and the WRAT), students begin working in the classroom on those areas for which they need the greatest attention.
