High school juniors: Be aware of a very important deadline that’s approaching quickly! In order to apply for the Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship, your application must be postmarked on or before June 30, 2022.* Online applications must also be received by the same date.
The current application requirements for high school juniors are as follows:
- Must be an Oklahoma resident
- Application must be received on or before June 30, 2022 *
- The parents’ federal adjusted gross income must not exceed $60K per year. ǂ
If you just finished 8th, 9th or 10th grade, your current application will also expire June 30, but a new one will be open July 1.
In order to receive the scholarship, you must also graduate from high school with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.50 or higher and a separate GPA of 2.50 or more in the 17 curriculum units required by Oklahoma’s Promise.
Even if you’ve decided college isn’t for you, be sure to apply if your family qualifies. By missing this deadline, you’d be closing the door to an opportunity to have some or all of your college tuition paid by the Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship program. Keep the door open!
Remember this: Be sure to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on or after October 1 in your senior year. Oklahoma’s Promise requires that you submit a FAFSA for each year that you’ll be attending college as well.
Visit OKPromise.org to submit your application soon!
*Homeschool applications must be postmarked before the student’s 16th birthday.
