Rose State College is proud to announce an opportunity for graduates of the Class of 2015 who will graduate from, or whose primary family residence is located in, the Carl Albert, Choctaw, Del City, Midwest City and Star Spencer school districts. Graduates who meet the criteria listed below will have the opportunity to receive financial assistance for tuition and mandatory fees for up to 62 attempted credit hours, or three consecutive years, whichever comes first.
Although a state institution, Rose State College also receives local funding through the Technical Area Education District supported by the citizens of our immediate service area. Thus, we are able to give back to our community and offer this generous source of financial assistance to our local graduates. We know that with the current economic conditions, students will be seeking new funding sources in order to begin their college education. We believe now is the time for "Your Community College" to invest in your success.
