Oklahoma’s Promise Workshop – Tishomingo
Tishomingo Public School parents with students entering 8th-10th grades are invited to come to the Tishomingo High School computer lab to get hands-on help with completing the Oklahoma’s Promise application. The program provides students with free tuition at Oklahoma post-secondary education institutions including college and career technology centers. School staff will be on-hand to assist parents with the application. The computer lab can host up to 15-people but laptops will be on-hand.
Oklahoma’s Promise Requirements: 1) Must be an Oklahoma resident, 2) Must enroll in the 8th, 9th or 10th grade, 3) The parents’ federal adjusted gross income must not exceed $55K per year. Parents should bring their most recent tax forms.
“Oklahoma’s Promise allows eighth-, ninth- or 10th-grade students from families with an income of $55,000 or less to earn a college tuition scholarship. Students must also meet academic and conduct requirements in high school.
Created in 1992 by the Legislature to help more Oklahoma families send their children to college, Oklahoma’s Promise was originally designated as the Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program. The program is administered by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.” https://www.okhighered.org/okpromise/
