‚ÄúWe encourage eligible students who just completed eighth through 11th grade to apply for Oklahoma‚Äôs Promise today,‚ÄĚ said Chancellor Allison D. Garrett. ‚ÄúSince the program‚Äôs inception in 1992, over 110,000 Oklahomans have earned the Oklahoma‚Äôs Promise scholarship, opening the door for them to achieve the dream of a college degree and join our state‚Äôs educated workforce.‚ÄĚ

The Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship covers tuition at any public college or university in the state for up to five years until the completion of a bachelor’s degree or a maximum of 129 semester credit hours. It will also pay a portion of the tuition at an accredited Oklahoma private college or at public career technology centers for certain programs that are eligible for federal financial aid. The scholarship amount does not include fees, books, supplies, or room and board.

Students enrolled in Oklahoma’s Promise must attend class regularly, take a 17-unit college preparatory curriculum, pass those courses with at least a 2.50 GPA and earn an overall GPA of at least 2.50 to be eligible for the scholarship. Students must agree to stay out of serious trouble and avoid drugs and alcohol.

Students must also meet certain income, academic, and conduct requirements while in college or attending a public career technology center to receive and retain the scholarship.

The Oklahoma Legislature created Oklahoma’s Promise in 1992 as an incentive for middle and high school students to commit to academic success and prepare for college. In 2007, the Oklahoma Legislature established a dedicated funding source for the program that has helped ensure scholarships earned by Oklahoma’s Promise students are fully paid each year.

Oklahoma’s Promise is recognized by many as one of the nation‚Äôs best college access programs and is considered a model that emphasizes both academic preparation and financial support for college.
