How This Program Works

Our promise to you:
We’ll help pay your college tuition.

The program also provides partial tuition for some courses at Oklahoma public technology centers.

Your promise to us:
You will earn at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA for all coursework attempted from grades nine through 12, including a 17-unit college-prep core curriculum to be completed in that time.

You’ll take school seriously, attend classes and finish homework. You’ll avoid substance abuse and engaging in criminal or delinquent acts. You’ll work with a school counselor to make sure you are keeping your promise.
