Opportunities for Postsecondary Success (OPS)

A support program for students with disabilities

The OPS program is based out of the Center for Community Partnerships in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Colorado State University. OPS works collaboratively with the Resources for Disabled Students Office and other student service offices. OPS is for CSU students with learning differences and/or disabilities who may benefit from individualized, weekly support services. These services support students in and out of the classroom and complement and collaborate with academic accommodations provided by the Resources for Disabled Students Office. OPS is for CSU students who would like to obtain one or more of the following goals:

  • Become more organized (learn strategies to improve executive functioning)
  • Increase academic effectiveness
  • Set and achieve goals
  • Manage stress
  • Ease adjustment to life as a student
  • Improve life balance
  • Understand and cope with sensory processing needs
  • Become part of a caring community
  • Determine academic and life direction
  • Strengthen communication and social skills
  • Become a stronger self-advocate
  • Connect with other needed resources on campus

The OPS program is $2,000 per semester. Students may financially qualify for assistance with the program fee through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.

The OPS program builds upon a solid foundation of services at the CCP and operates in partnership with CSU's Department of Occupational Therapy, Assistive Technology Resource Center, Division of Student Affairs, and Resources for Disabled Students; as well as Front Range Community College, the Poudre School District, the City of Fort Collins Adaptive Recreation Opportunities program, Foothills Gateway, Inc. and the CO Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
