The Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program (OHLAP) has been available to students since 1992. The program provides resident tuition for courses needed to complete a degree or program within five years from award.

To be eligible students must:

  • be a resident of Oklahoma,
  • make commitment to the program as an 8th, 9th or 10th grader,
  • complete the courses required for admission to any  Oklahoma college or university plus 1 unit (these courses must include 2 units of foreign language or technology, and 1 unit of fine arts),

Union SchoolsSecond year in a row!

Originally posted January 31, 2014

Union High School in Tulsa was the Class 6A champ for the second year in a row for graduating the most Oklahoma's Promise participants by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Broken Arrow High School came in second in Class 6A.

"This achievement is a testament to our staff's commitment to our 100 percent College and Career goal,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “The increased personalization we have worked so hard to achieve with our students is paying off dividends.”

The 2012-13 year-end report for the scholarship program highlighted the 2013 Oklahoma's Promise State Champion in each class. The regents accepted the report during their meeting.

The Oklahoma’s Promise! program pays the college tuition at state public institutions for students who meet academic and family income requirements.
