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:
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.
