What happens after graduation?

After final grades are posted, Mrs. Odle will complete the Oklahoma's Promise Certificate of Completion and mail it to the Regent's office with a copy of your final transcript. Upon receiving the final paperwork from the school, the Oklahoma's Promise office will evaluate your transcript and notify you in writing. Their goal is to notify you within two weeks of receiving the final paperwork however, due to the increasing number of graduating Oklahoma's Promise seniors each year, it may take a little longer. It will be up to you to let the college or university know that you are an Oklahoma's Promise student. (If you complete the Oklahoma's Promise high school requirements, you will receive more information in your award letter packet.) The first list of eligible students will be made available to the colleges and universities beginning July 1 and they will update the list on a regular basis.
