The Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship program offers qualified Oklahoma students an opportunity to earn a scholarship for college tuition. To qualify for enrollment:
- You must be an Oklahoma resident.
- You must enroll for the scholarship in the 8th, 9th or 10th grade
(at the age of 13, 14 or 15 for homeschool students.)
- Your parent(s)’ federal adjusted gross income (AGI) must not exceed $55,000 per year.
Special income provisions apply to legal guardians and certain adoptive parents.
High school students who have just completed 10th grade must apply for Oklahoma’s Promise before July 1, 2019 in order for their application to be considered. If students in the 8th or 9th grade miss the July 1 deadline, they’ll have the opportunity to use the 2019-2020 application this fall.
In the 2017-18 school year, 83% of Oklahoma’s Promise recipients were also eligible for federal Pell Grants, which is more ‘free money’ for college that doesn’t have to be repaid. Oklahoma’s Promise students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in their senior year to verify their family income a second time and to determine their eligibility for the Pell Grant and the Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG).
