Oklahoma's Promise


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-, 10th- and 11th-grade students (homeschool students must be age 13, 14, 15 or 16) that will help pay for their college education if their parents' federal adjusted gross income is

  • $60,000 with 1 or 2 dependent children OR
  • $70,000 with 3 or 4 dependent children OR
  • $80,000 with 5 or more dependent children.


But college isn't easy. So to make sure students get ready for college while they're still in high school, the program requires students to take certain high school courses. They will have to pass those courses and keep up their grades. And besides staying on top of the books, students will also have to show that they're in control outside the classroom. That means staying away from trouble like gangs, drugs and alcohol. In short, the student promises to prepare academically for college and stay out of trouble, and in return, the state of Oklahoma promises to help pay the student’s college tuition.
*Special income provisions apply to certain adopted children, children in the custody of court-appointed legal guardians and families receiving Social Security benefits based on the disability or death of the student's parents. Contact the Oklahoma's Promise office for more information. In addition, the federal adjusted gross income (AGI) of the student's parents (or the income of the student if the student is officially determined to be financially independent of their parents) may not exceed $100,000 at the time the student begins college and prior to receiving the scholarship. 

 

If you don't qualify for this program, there are still other ways to pay for college, including scholarships, grants and student loans. For more information on other financial aid, see your counselor for more details, visit the Financial Aid Planning section of OKcollegestart.org, or call the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education's student information hotline at 800.858.1840.

Individual Career Academic Planning (ICAP) is a collaboratively developed, student-driven
process where students cultivate their own informed decisions for post-secondary success
based on their interests, skills and future goals. 

Title 70 O.S. § 1210.508-4, phased in a system of individualized
learning/achievement plans for students as part of a multi-measure approach to graduation
requirements.

 

Beginning with the graduating class of 2023, each student

shall be required to complete the process of an ICAP in order to graduate from a public high
school with a standard diploma.
The ICAP shall include, but not be limited to:

a. Career-and college-interest surveys,
b. written post-secondary and workforce goals and information of progress toward these
goals,
c. intentional sequence of courses that reflect progress toward the post-secondary goal,
