Oklahoma’s Promise Any OKPromise student with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 upon the completion of sixty (60) earned semester credit hours shall permanently lose eligibility.

Oklahoma’s Promise College GPA Example (2.0): 1. Mary graduated from high school in 2012 and attended college beginning in fall After her first year of college, Mary has 46 hours earned, including some concurrent enrollment hours taken during her senior year in high school. She enrolls in 15 hours in the fall 2013 semester. At the end of the fall semester Mary now has 61 hours earned (completed). When all postsecondary grades are included in a cumulative grade point average, Mary has a 1.89 GPA. Because her GPA is below 2.0, Mary permanently loses eligibility for the Oklahoma’s Promise award.
Oklahoma’s Promise College GPA (Example 2.5 GPA) 2. George also graduated from high school in George’s cumulative grade point average at the end of the fall 2013 semester, in which he earns his 60th credit hour, is 2.3. George is eligible to continue receiving the Oklahoma’s Promise award, assuming he is in compliance with the institution’s satisfactory academic progress (SAP) policy. During spring 2014, George enrolls in 18 hours and then takes another 15 hours in fall George now has at least 90 hours earned and is subject to the cumulative GPA requirement of 2.5 for courses taken after the completion of 60 hours. George has a 2.4 GPA calculated on all the hours taken during the spring 2014 and fall 2014 semesters. George loses the award until his GPA on hours taken after the completion of 60 hours reaches or exceeds 2.5.
