Ticket to Rose Program

Ticket to Rose is a program sponsored by Rose State College for graduates of the Class of 2016 who will graduate from, or who live in, the Carl Albert, Choctaw, Del City, Midwest City, and Star Spencer school districts. It offers assistance when scholarships and other forms of federal or state financial aid (excluding loans) do not cover the cost of tuition and fees. Therefore, the need for assistance through the Ticket to Rose program is determined by the student’s on-line application of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Should the student receive assistance from another source that pays for tuition and fees, the amount paid by the Ticket to Rose program may be reduced. 

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.
