Congratulations on your enrollment in the Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship program!
As you know, the scholarship may be used at accredited public or private colleges or universities in Oklahoma as well as for a limited number of programs and courses at public technology centers within the state.
Be sure you review this important information about the requirements of the OK Promise scholarship.
Don’t forget that there are two GPA requirements you must meet: a 2.50 for all courses you take AND a 2.50 in the 17 specific college prep courses required to receive the OK Promise scholarship. Check with your counselor to make sure you are on track. For more information, visit the FAQ page.

Are you a junior or senior in high school? Remember, there will be a check of the second income limit when you start college to ensure that you still meet the Oklahoma's Promise income criteria. Beginning in the 2018-19 academic year, this income limit will be applied each year you are enrolled in postsecondary education. The second income limit will be verified through the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
For more information, visit the FAQ for high school seniors.
Second Income Limit
Oklahoma's Promise students graduating high school are subject to a second income limit and must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information from the FAFSA will be used to determine whether or not the federal adjusted gross income (AGI) of the student’s parents exceeds $100,000 at the time the student begins postsecondary education (the income limit will apply to the student’s income if the student is officially determined to be financially independent of his or her parents).
Beginning in 2018-19, the second income limit will be applied each year to all OKPromise students enrolled in postsecondary education (college), not just entering freshmen. For any year that the income reported on the student’s current FAFSA exceeds $100,000, the student will not be eligible to receive the OK Promise benefit. Any year that the student does not receive the award because their income exceeds the income limit will count toward the five-year period of scholarship eligibility.
Remedial Coursework Not Covered
The OK Promise award will not be allowed for payment of noncredit remedial courses.
Maximum Limit on Total Hours Paid by OK Promise
OK Promise awards will not cover courses taken in excess of the requirements for completion of a bachelor’s (undergraduate) degree program. Legislation passed during the 2017 legislative session requires the State Regents to set a maximum limit on the number of courses/credit hours to which the OK Promise award will apply. The State Regents are expected to set this limit through the administrative procedures process during the 2017-18 academic year.
