It’s Time to Celebrate Oklahoma’s Promise Day!

The Oklahoma’s Promise (OKP) scholarship program allows students from families with a maximum specified income to earn a college tuition scholarship. Students must also meet academic and conduct requirements in high school. The program was created in 1992 by the state legislature, and is now in its 32nd year of making students’ futures even brighter. We’ll be celebrating our premier scholarship program at the state capitol building on April 11 this year.

Here are some things you need to know about Oklahoma’s Promise:

  • Students must enroll for the scholarship in the 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade
  • Homeschool students may apply at ages 13, 14, 15 or 16
  • At the time they enroll, the family’s federal adjusted gross income (AGI) must be:
    • $60,000 or less for a household with one or two dependent children
    • $70,000 or less for a household with three or four dependent children
    • $80,000 or less for a household with five or more dependent children
  • Students must be residents of Oklahoma and graduate from a high school or homeschool program in Oklahoma
  • Student must graduate with a high school grade point average (GPA) of 2.50 or higher in

If you’re an OKP recipient, you must submit a FAFSA for each year that you’re in college. In order to receive your scholarship, your family’s AGI that’s shown on your FAFSA must be $100,000 or less.
