Oklahoma’s Promise

Oklahoma’s Promise is a financially based tuition scholarship that pays the cost of tuition for enrollment at a public Oklahoma college or university. It pays a portion of these costs for students that wish to attend a private school, as well as for courses at certain public technology centers.

Enrollment must be done when the student is in 8th, 9th, or 10th grade (aged 13-15 for home-schooled students). The deadline each year is typically at the end of June, and applications are available each year in August. Check online for a current application.

Contact the counselor’s office if you have any questions.
