Oklahoma's Promise

How it Works

Discover the promise of FREE college tuition!

Oklahomans want to see deserving students succeed – students who study and work hard, but whose families find it difficult to afford college. If your child dreams of going to college and works to achieve it, then we can help make it a reality!

To make that happen, the Oklahoma Legislature has set up a unique program for eighth-, ninth- and 10th-grade students (home school students must be age 13, 14 or 15) that will help pay for their college education if their family's income is $50,000 or less at the time the student applies for the program.* This program is Oklahoma's Promise.

The Promise

Upon completion of the program's requirements, you will earn:

  • Free tuition at an Oklahoma public two- year college or four- year university
  • OR a portion of tuition at an accredited Oklahoma private college or university
  • OR a portion of tuition for courses at public technology centers that are approved for credit toward an Associate of Applied Science degree at a public college.

The scholarship amount does not cover fees, books, supplies or room and board.
