Oklahoma State Regents Academic Scholars Program

The Academic Scholars Program, established by the state legislature and governor in 1988 and operated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, provides scholarships to academically outstanding students who attend an Oklahoma college or university.


Academic Scholars receive a scholarship to help cover the cost of room, board, tuition, books and incidental fees for up to eight semesters. The actual value of the scholarship varies based on the institution the scholar chooses to attend.

To qualify for the Academic Scholars Program, the applicant must meet the criteria outlined below.
- Both Oklahoma and out-of-state students can automatically qualify for the program by achieving designation as a National Merit Scholar, National Merit Finalist or United States Presidential Scholar through their performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
- Oklahoma residents may also qualify by scoring at or above the 99.5 percentile on the ACT or SAT. For the upcoming fall semester, a sum of the ACT skill area scores totaling 134 or a critical reading and math score totaling 1570 on the SAT is required.
- Public colleges and universities may also nominate students attending their institution for the program based on criteria established by each institution.
