Notice of Nondiscrimination
Oklahoma State University, in compliance with Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order 11246 as amended, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Higher Education Act), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and other federal and state laws and regulations, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, genetic information, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, or status as a veteran, in any of its policies, practices or procedures.
This provision includes, but is not limited to admissions, employment, financial aid, and educational services.
The Director of Equal Opportunity, has been designated to handle inquiries regarding non-discrimination policies: Any person (student, faculty, or staff) who believes that discriminatory practices have been engaged in based on gender may discuss his or her concerns and file informal or formal complaints of possible violations of Title IX with OSU’s Title IX Coordinator (405)744-9154.
In accordance with the Department of Education and Department of Justice, OSU Housing and Residential Life’s Housing and Overnight Accommodations are as follows:
- Title IX allows a school to provide separate housing on the basis of sex. But a school must allow transgender students to access housing consistent with their gender identity and may not require transgender students to stay in single-occupancy accommodations or to disclose personal information when not required of other students.
- Nothing in Title IX prohibits a school from honoring a student’s voluntary request for single- occupancy accommodations if it so chooses. If you need special accommodation, please contact Office of Multicultural Affairs at (405)744-5481.
- Residents who are required to register their name and home address with any local or state law enforcement agency as a result of a criminal offense are required to disclose this information in writing to the Director of Housing and Residential Life, prior to checking-in to their assignments for review.
