New for 2018-19!
*The scholarship will not longer pay for zero-credit remedial courses in college.
*The $100,000 AGI second income limit will be applied to every OKPromise recipient EACH year in postsecondary education, rather than just the freshmen year. Students will be required to file the FAFSA every year and could move in and out of scholarship eligibility each year. For any year that the federal adjusted gross income (AGI) of the student's parents exceeds $100,000, the student will not be eligible for the award that year. This change will apply to all OKPromise college students in the 2018-19 and thereafter, regardless of when the student graduated from high school.
*Beginning with OKPromise students graduating high school in 2018, payment of the OKPromise scholarship will be limited to 129 semester credit hours in college. Exceptions to the limit may be considered for degree programs that require more than 129 credit hour.
Changes that became effective in 2017-18
*The family income limit at the time of application in the 8th-10th grade increased from $50,000 to $55,000. the income limit is now based on the parents' federal adjusted gross income (AGI, rather than total taxable and nontaxable income).
*Upon graduation from high school, eligible OKPromise students who choose to attend an Oklahoma public career technology center will have an expanded selection of programs. Career tech programs that are eligible for federal financial aid are not eligible for use of the OKPromise scholarship.
