2007 Legislative changes

Photo of a female student.During the 2007 legislative session, the Oklahoma Legislature made several important changes to Oklahoma’s Promise with Senate Bill 820. One of the most significant changes was the authorization of a dedicated funding source for the Oklahoma’s Promise scholarship beginning in 2008-09. This change will ensure that the scholarship is fully funded each year. Other important changes include a second family income limit requirement when the student enters college, new minimum college GPAs, a new college conduct requirement, and eligibility for homeschool students to participate in the program. A further change restricts the eligibility of undocumented immigrant students to receive the scholarship. Each of these changes is discussed in more detail below.
