Optional Program for the Hiring Applicants with Disabilities

Human Capital Management administers the Optional Program for Hiring Applicants with Disabilities, through which persons with severe disabilities, who are legal residents of Oklahoma may gain access to state employment. All applicants must meet the minimum education and experience qualifications for the job posting they are applying for.

Tests for all state jobs may be waived for those qualified applicants certified as eligible for this program through the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services. Applicants hired through this program are eligible for permanent status in the classified service upon successful completion of a probationary period.

How To Participate In The Optional Program for Hiring Applicants with Disabilities:

  1. Obtain a certification letter from the Department of Rehabilitation Services stating that you are certified as having a severe disability as defined by state law.
  2. Submit an application for employment, including the required disability certification letter, to Human Capital Personnel Management.
  3. HCM will review your qualifications and send you a notice confirming that your name has been placed on the eligible list if you qualify.
  4. As vacancies occur in the job class, HCM will send your name to all State of Oklahoma agencies who request a referral list for that job class.
