This state funded program pays for up to full general tuition for those students who qualify. Fees are not paid by this program. Students must sign up during their 8th, 9th or 10th grade with a validated household income of less than $55,000 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. This second income check of $100,000 is checked yearly for the student and parent by FAFSA submission. Students lose their Oklahoma Promise Eligibility for the year if the $100,000 income limit is exceeded.
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. All Oklahoma Promise students must also meet the Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements.
