Bartlesville's Promise

Graduates of Bartlesville High School who meet certain academic and income requirements may attend Rogers State University without paying any out-of-pocket expenses as part of a partnership between BHS, RSU and the community of Bartlesville.

The partnership is part of the Bartlesville’s Promise to Students Program. The agreement is signed by Dr. Larry Rice, RSU President; Dr. Gary Quinn, Superintendent of Bartlesville Public Schools; and Marta Manning, President of the Bartlesville Board of Education.

RSU is committed to making a college education as accessible and affordable as possible for all students. Students should not be denied an education because they cannot afford it. A lower income should never be a barrier to attending college.

It has been clearly established through decades of research that those who earn a college degree are more likely to earn a higher income and lead a successful and productive life.

To qualify for the Bartlesville’s Promise to Students Program at RSU, a student must:

  • graduate from Bartlesville High School with a 2.7 grade point average or higher
  • achieve a score of 20 or higher on the ACT college entrance exam
  • qualify for participation in the Oklahoma’s Promise Program
  • qualify for the maximum level of federal and state financial aid after completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • and qualify for admission to RSU

If a student meets those requirements, he or she will incur no out-of-pocket expenses associated with attending the university, including tuition and fees, as long as the student continues to meet the requirements of receiving all applicable financial aid, remains a full-time student and maintains minimum academic standards.
