Oklahoma's Promise Scholarship Program

Langston University is pleased to share information about Oklahoma’s Promise Scholarship Program. Provided through the Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program, qualifying high school and homeschool students can earn a tuition scholarship at state public universities. That includes Langston University, Oklahoma’s only Historically Black College or University (HBCU)! 

As a public land-grand university, tuition and fees at Langston University are much more affordable than at larger public higher education institutions.
