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- and 10th-grade students (homeschool students must be age 13, 14 or 15) that will help pay for their college education if their family’s income is $50,000 or less at the time the student applies for the program.* This program is Oklahoma’s Promise.
To be considered for federal financial aid, you must complete and submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) each year. Additionally, most states, colleges, and universities use the FAFSA to award other types of student aid, including state- and college-sponsored financial aid, such as grants, educational loans, and work-study programs. This is a free application! Never pay to complete or submit the FAFSA form.

Developed by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the Oklahoma Guaranteed Student Loan Program, the site offers college and career exploration resources, planning tools and payment information, as well as tips and timelines for the admission process.
