Oklahoma's Promise

Oklahoma’s Promise

We're committed to helping academically-eligible Oklahoma's Promise recipients achieve the dream of a college education at OSU. Oklahoma students in grades 8-10 can sign up to participate in the program, previously known as OHLAP and administered by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE). Once you graduate from high school and complete the curricular and conduct requirements for the program, you will receive funding from Oklahoma's Promise to cover the cost of tuition at OSU.


Beginning with the Fall 2012 semester, allOklahoma’s Promise recipients will be subject to OSU’s financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy. All students receiving Oklahoma’s Promise from that point on must meet this requirement, including students who received the award in previous years and students who have not applied for and/or received federal/state financial aid. If you are ineligible to receive federal/state financial aid as defined by OSU’s SAP policy, you will not be eligible to receive Oklahoma’s Promise or Cowboy Covenant funding.

Effective for Oklahoma's Promise college students receiving the award for the first time in 2012-13 and thereafter, a minimum college GPA of 2.00 will be required for courses taken through the sophomore year and a minimum college GPA of 2.50 will be required for courses taken during the junior year and thereafter. 

This is a change to state policy and not limited to OSU.

Cowboy Covenant

Cowboy Covenant is a program designed to provide additional financial assistance to Oklahoma's Promise students. The Cowboy Covenant program demonstrates our commitment to Oklahoma's Promise students and the state of Oklahoma by making a high-quality, yet affordable education possible.

IMPORTANT: New changes to OSU's Cowboy Covenant Program beginning Fall 2012!
