    *******2014 grads will not show up in the 13-14 Eligibility; 2014 grads are not eligible until the fall 2015.*Potentially Eligible still processing and will continue to show on the Potential list Before graduation - these students have not graduated After graduation we have to receive the final paperwork and evaluate, followed by the second income check (they will stay on the potential list until both are completed.

    Not an OKPromise Student this is a bit misleading but it means they are no long on the Potential list anymore. **Remember!!! Each report is totally separate from the others. If you run the Potentially Eligible Report and it comes back with Not an OKPromise student, this only means that the student is not a potentially eligible student. If you run the 2014-15 Eligibility Report, the same student may show up as Eligible.**Common expiration dates are 5/31/14, 7/31/14 and 12/31/14**Window 7 may have to hover over the IE icon and look for the light blue window. Click on it and tell it ok or run.********
