Oklahoma’s Promise offers qualified Oklahoma students an opportunity to earn a scholarship for college tuition.
Important Changes Beginning in 2021-22
- 11th grade students can now apply!
- $60,000 – The application income limit has increased!
- “Additional Course” Requirement – More courses may now be used to satisfy the 1-unit “Additional Course” requirement, including psychology, sociology or any concurrent liberal arts and science course at a State System college or university. [Psychology and sociology do not count toward the 3 required units of History and Citizenship Skills.]
- December 31 Incomplete Application Deadline – Due to a change in the administrative rules, the new deadline for a student to finalize an incomplete application is December 31 of the student’s senior year. If the student graduates early, the application must be completed before the student’s graduation.
Which Courses Qualify for Oklahoma’s Promise?
Please continue to be very careful about the courses intended to count for Oklahoma’s Promise, college admission and the college preparatory/work-ready curriculum. The allowable courses are very specific as described in the curriculum. For more details, please visit www.okpromise.org, click on the FAQ in the Quick Links at the bottom of the homepage and then click on Courses to Take. Students taking high school career tech courses intended to count toward the OKPromise curriculum requirements must have the courses (not the program title) listed on the transcript.
In evaluating the 2021 Oklahoma’s Promise seniors’ transcripts and program verification curriculum worksheets, we found a few errors described below:
- SCIENCE courses! Students must be completing the college prep-work ready diploma requirements to meet OKPromise curriculum. Some courses for the core diploma do not count for OKPromise.
- Financial Literacy, Intermediate Algebra, Math of Finance and Yearbook courses do not count toward the Oklahoma’s Promise curriculum.
For more information on the unique policies for students in these situations, contact the Oklahoma’s Promise office.
