Oklahoma HB 2865: Tuition Aid Grants for Students with IDD
Introduced in 2023, this Act would amend 70 O.S. 2021, Section 626.7, allowing opportunities for tuition aid grants to students with intellectual and developmental disabilities enrolled in a postsecondary education program.
Eligible students must be enrolled and in good standing at a comprehensive transition and postsecondary program (CTP), approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education will determine rules and regulations for maximum number of semesters a student may be eligible for grants. The amount of the grant shall not exceed 75% of the tuition and enrollment fees normally charged to residents of the state by the institution of attendance. Annual maximum award determined by annual assessment of funds available.
This grant would be considered part of a student’s financial aid package.
