OK Promise (Formerly OHLAP) is a state funded program that will pay tuition at an Oklahoma Public two-year college or four-year university for those students who qualify. To be considered eligible, students must have signed up during their 8th, 9th, or 10th grade year with a validated household income of less than $50,000 and complete the required coursework and conditions outlined by the Oklahoma State Regents Office.
The Financial Aid office verifies eligibility for all students enrolled and notifies OKPromise of tuition costs. Generally, OKPromise payments are put on students’ accounts 4-6 weeks after the Add/Drop date.
The scholarship, however, does not cover items such as books, supplies, room and board, and other fees that are usually associated with tuition costs. Students are encouraged to apply for other types of financial aid to cover these costs.
Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, all OK Promise students attending SOSU must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements set by SOSU. If you become ineligible for federal financial aid (like Pell grants or student loans) for not meeting the SAP requirements, you will be ineligible for OK Promise. This requirement applies to all OK Promise students, even if the student is not currently receiving federal financial aid and regardless of the year the student started college
