Rose State College has many scholarship options for students. Check out the links to find out about these important options. Pay particular attention to the deadline for the scholarship in which you are interested.
- Scholarships (tuition waivers) are non-transferable.
- Unless specifically noted on the award letter, scholarships apply toward general tuition only. The scholarships are not cash awards and do not cover special fees or books.
- Scholarships are usually awarded for both Fall and/or Spring terms. Be sure to check your award letter for specific term/s the scholarship is good for. Students interested in Summer awards may request such consideration separately. Summer awards will be made pending availability of funds and exceptional academic performance during prior semesters.
- Scholarships are not automatically renewable. Students must re-apply every year. Some scholarships, such as the Academic Success Scholarship, are one-year awards and must be used during the semester listed on the award letter.
- Only one tuition waiver scholarship per student can be accepted. Since scholarships cannot be "stacked", recipients are advised to accept the highest award granted.
- Generally, students must be enrolled in a minimum of three credit hours during a given semester to utilize the award unless stated otherwise in your award letter.
To receive a scholarship, the student must be a legal resident of the State of Oklahoma as classified by the Office of Admissions and Records. Scholarships are not available to non-residents. All students are required to enroll in a minimum number of credit hours based upon the award type.
All students receiving leadership scholarships, with the exception of the Academic Success Scholarship, are required to enroll in LEAD 2103, Lessons in Leadership Class during the first fall semester and attend the Leadership Retreat in August. A key component of the course is the application of leadership theory to "real life" projects. Participants also focus on balancing their time and involvement, developing goals, and learning and practicing communication skills. Other participation required is club participation, service hours, attend meeting, etc. depending on the leadership scholarship received. Scholar-leaders also have one on one case management of their academic plans.
