About Parent Promise

The Parent Promise expands higher education access in order to help students achieve a livable wage and strengthen the workforce pipeline.

Through the Parent Promise, parents with a child who has qualified for the Texoma Promise, have earned their GED or high school diploma and have not yet obtained a college-level certificate or degree can have the opportunity to earn a certificate, associate, with no out-of-pocket tuition or mandatory fee costs. Once enrolled, success coaching and career services are provided to all Promise Scholars throughout their time in college.
