email@example.comNEW CHANGES FOR OKLAHOMA’S PROMISE STUDENTS:
THE SCHOLARSHIIP WILL NO LONGER PAY FOR ZERO-CREDIT REMEDIAL COURSES IN COLLEGE
THE $100,000 AGI SECOND INCOME LIMIT WILL BE APPLIED TO EVERY OKPROMISE RECIPIENT EACH YEAR IN POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION, RATHER THAN JUST THE FRESHMEN YEAR. STUDENTS WILL BE REQIIRED TO FILE THE FAFSA EVERY YEAR AND COULD MOVE IN AND OUT OF SCHOLARSHIP ELIGIBILITY EACH YEAR. FOR ANY YEAR THAT THE FEDERAL ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME (AGI) OF THE STUDENT’S PARENTS EXCEEDS $100,000, THE STUDENT WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE AWARD THAT YEAR. THIS CHANGE WILL APPLY TO ALL OKPROMISE COLLEGE STUDENTS IN 2018-19 AND THEREAFTER, REGARDLESS OF WHEN THE STUDENT GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL. BEGINNING WITH OKPROMISE STUDENTS GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL IN 2018, PAYMENT OF THE OKPROMISE SCHOLARSHIP WILL BE LIMITED TO 129 SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS IN COLLEGE. EXCEPTIONS TO THE LIMIT MAY BE CONSIDERED FOR DEGREE PROGRAMS THAT REQUIRE MORE THAN 129 CREDIT HOURS. THE FAMILY INCOME LIMIT AT THE TIME OF APPLICATION IN THE 8TH-10TH GRADE INCREASED FROM $50,000 TO $55,000. THE INCOME LIMIT IS NOW BASED ON THE PARENTS’ FEDERAL ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME (AGI, RATHER THAN TOTAL TAXABLE AND NONTAXABLE INCOME )
UPON GRADUATION FROM HIGH SCHOOL, ELIGIBLE OKPROMISE STUDENTS WHO CHOOSE TO ATTEND AN OKLAHOMA PUBLIC CAREER TECHNOLOGY CENTER WILL HAVE AN EXPANDED SELECTION OF PROGRAMS. CAREER TECH PROGRAMS THAT ARE ELIGIBLE FOR FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR USE OF THE OKPROMISE SCHOLARSHIP.

I wanted to share some information about Talking Leaves Job Corps with you. TLJC is for individuals 16 to 24 year olds who are needing to get their High School Diploma or GED and also a trade. TLJC is completely FREE – students can live on center, all meals are paid for, transportation is provided, they receive a small paycheck biweekly and once they do complete the program they get paid $500 to $1,000 for help with getting their first apartment or car, or whatever they may need. TLJC staff also helps them find jobs for up to two years once they graduate to make sure they are successful.
If someone already has their HS or GED, they may still attend to become certified in a trade. The vocational tracks we offer include Office Administration, Culinary Arts, Certified Nursing Assistant, Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, Electrical Wiring and Building Construction Technology. We also help students get their Driver’s License.
We have many clubs and organizations on center and help them gain work experience through internships.
TLJC is open for ALL! An individual does not have to be Cherokee or Native American to attend.
If you have any questions or you feel that some of your students may benefit from this information please feel to contact me! I would be happy to stop by for a visit.
Thank you and have a great day! J

CHECK THESE OUT THEY WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH ALOT OF GOOD INFORMATION
I’m with Reviews.com, a website dedicated to conducting data driven and unbiased research about topics that can help make an impact in people's lives. We have been fortunate enough to be a trusted resource for families, organizations and educational institution throughout the US.
I wanted to ask you about our recent research to see if it could be a helpful resource for students who are looking to finance their education by using available scholarships that are offered throughout the US. I'm guessing that like us, you too have noticed there is no shortage of information about the numerous scholarships available to students. In the course of our research, we found a common pain point among students was finding tools to sort through all the available scholarships to find those that would be most applicable to their situation. So we spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular scholarship search platforms that are currently available. We analyzed and audited them using five core metrics to identify key functionality, research tools, and useful student resources.
You can see the entire guide along with some of its features here:
If you find the resources useful, I would appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with you to share our guide on your website so that students and their families can have access to these resources. Of course, you are free to choose the best place for it on your site.
Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. If there's someone else I should reach out to, please let me know as well, I'd be happy to connect with them.
Thank you for your time and consideration!

Welcome to the Cowboy Connection! GO TO THE WEBSITES SO YOU CAN OPEN PROGRAMS AND EVENTS.
It's time for another edition of Cowboy Connection from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Oklahoma State.
OSU's newest event, Orange Friday, gives your students a chance to get all their admission questions answered while enjoying the unique weekend gameday atmosphere! Students will experience an informative Admissions presentation to learn everything they need to know about becoming a future OSU Cowboy before heading out on an hour and a half walking tour of campus and residential life. In the afternoon, there are many opportunities to plan and personalize the day. Options include an academic appointment, scholarships and financial aid presentation, an athletics tour and pre-professional appointments for students who are interested in going to professional school, such as medical school, law school or veterinary medicine. We want to help students make the most of their day on campus!
