Once you graduate as an approved "debt-free teacher," you teach in a mutually-agreed upon high-need area of education in Oklahoma and we foot the bill for up to $20,000 of your qualifying student loans. On your end, you are responsible for checking in with the College twice annually--once by November 1, the other by May 1--to verify your high quality teacher status and employment. You will find all of the forms and information you need right here.
