Oklahoma Promise


Oklahoma’s Promise allows eighth-, ninth- or 10th-grade students from families with an income of $50,000 or less to earn a college tuition scholarship. Students must also meet academic and conduct requirements in high school.

Created in 1992 by the Legislature to help more Oklahoma families send their children to college, Oklahoma’s Promise was originally designated as the Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program. The program is administered by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

  • An Oklahoma resident.
  • Enrolled in the eighth, ninth or 10th grade in an Oklahoma high school. (Homeschool students must be age 13, 14 or 15.)

Special income provisions may apply to:

  • Children adopted from certain court-ordered custody and children in the custody of court-appointed legal guardians.
  • Families receiving Social Security disability and death benefits.
