Guaranteed Tuition Program

The State of Oklahoma has adopted a Guaranteed Tuition Program, effective in 2008-2009. First-time RSU students can lock in tuition rates for the duration of their undergraduate education, but not longer than four consecutive academic years.

Important points to consider:

  • Students must sign up when they enroll. This is the student’s responsibility. Once a student has enrolled without registering for the guaranteed program, they are no longer eligible.
  • Students must be first-time RSU students, including freshmen and transfer students.
  • Students must maintain full-time status. Full-time status at RSU is 12 hours each semester.
  • The Guaranteed Tuition Program is for tuition only. The state’s public colleges and universities also charge fees, which are not covered by this program.
  • Guaranteed tuition rates can be higher - as much as 115 percent - than the non-guaranteed tuition rate.
