This state funded program pays for up to full general tuition for those students who qualify. Fees are not paid by this program. Students had to have signed up during their 8th, 9th or 10th grade with a validated household income of less than $50,000 and complete the required coursework and conditions outlined by the Oklahoma State Regents Office in order to qualify.
A second determination of eligibility is done at the second income check. The family income for an entering college freshman cannot exceed $100,000 to maintain eligibility. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid so that the second income check can be completed. This second income check is performed one time before the student enters as a freshman.
Oklahoma residents who meet Oklahoma Promise financial need criteria during high school may qualify for payment of their tuition (no fees). Students must also be on the Official Oklahoma Promise Scholarship Eligibility Report. Students who graduated from high school starting with May 2010 will have to maintain a Cumulative GPA of 2.0 for classes attempted through the first 60 hours. For hours attempted beyond 60 hours, students must maintain a 2.5 GPA. All Oklahoma Promise students must also meet the Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements.
