  • Welcome to Moving from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study in Oklahoma
  • Programs of Study is a part of school improvement. It is a part of the work done by SREB, mentioned in Pathways to Prosperity and is the new vision for CTE of the National State Directors. It is currently a requirement in Carl Perkins. It is the right thing to do for students regardless of what happens to Perkins funding.
  • Current definition
  • Programs of Study are more than a Plan of Study, or Individual Career Plan. POS starts at the Cluster level.

  • Oklahoma was one of four participants with Minnesota, Kentucky and Guam. Conducted by the National Research Center for CTE at the University of Louisville.
  • We knew that this was an issue. Programs of Study are called Plans of Study, Career Majors, etc.
  • We worked with a researcher from the University of Louisville. The results of the study confirmed that there was confusion.
  • ODCTE will now reference Individual Career Plan, or ICP, instead of Plans of Study.
  • We are conducting the OK Programs of Study Institute this fall.
  • Participants of the OkPOSI
  • All Perkins LEA’s will be invited. The blueprint for Oklahoma’s Programs of Study, and how they will be implemented under Perkins, will be revealed.

  • Cooperative Alliances and Financial Aid
  • Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU) Aggregate Loan Limits and new legislation limiting subsidized student loan eligibility (150% of published length of program)
  • Financial Aid Statement Students taking Cooperative Agreement courses for college credit need to be informed of current restrictions placed on federal financial aid. To remain eligible for federal financial aid, students must complete an associate degree that requires 62 credit hours by the time 93 credit hours are attempted and a bachelor’s degree requiring 124 hours by the time 186 credit hours are attempted. The Cooperative Alliance credits are applicable only to Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees; therefore, students planning to earn an associate degree that transfers (Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS)) to a university will have taken credit hours that will not apply to the degree but probably will count as hours attempted. Students who drop or fail Cooperative Alliance courses while at the technology center could enter college and immediately be probationary or even suspended from financial aid due to grade point average or credits attempted limitations. Questions regarding the applicability of Cooperative Alliance courses and financial aid should be directed to the college financial aid office.
  • Ultimately, the “take away” should be that taking hours for college credit can affect the student’s future eligibility for federal financial aid even if financial aid is not received for the college credit courses. Any courses that a student fails to complete successfully or any courses that do not count toward the student’s ultimate post- secondary degree objective may jeopardize the student’s financial aid eligibility.
