June 30 is last day to enroll for Oklahoma Promise

June 30 is the last day to enroll in a popular Oklahoma scholarship program for students who just completed eighth, ninth or 10th grade called Oklahoma Promise. This scholarship program allows high school students (from families whose annual income is $55,000 or less) the opportunity to earn a college tuition scholarship.
The Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship covers tuition at any public college or university in the state for up to five years until the completion of a bachelor’s degree or a maximum of 129 semester credit hours. It will also pay a portion of the tuition at an accredited Oklahoma private college or at public career technology centers for certain programs that are eligible for federal financial aid. The scholarship amount does not include books, supplies or room and board.
After students enroll in Oklahoma’s Promise, they must attend classes regularly, take a 17-hour college preparatory curriculum, pass those courses with at least a 2.5 GPA and achieve an overall GPA of at least 2.50 to be eligible for the scholarship.
The Oklahoma Legislature created Oklahoma’s Promise in 1992. During the 2020-21 academic year, nearly 15,000 students earned the scholarship.
