How To Apply

Due to the Winter Break, students applying to the UNT Honors College between December 18, 2017, and January 8, 2018, can expect an additional delay of two to three weeks for the processing of applications.  We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!

The Honors College welcomes applications from new freshmen, transfer, and continuing UNT students.

In order to receive consideration for the Honors College, you must first be admitted to UNT. Once you have been assigned your UNT Student ID number and your UNT email, you then will have the opportunity to apply for the Honors College.

**Students must apply for Honors College admission prior to June 1, 2018, in order to be eligible to enroll in Honors classes and activate their membership in Fall 2018.  Students applying for Honors College admission after June 1, 2018, will be considered for admission to the Honors College for the Spring 2019 semester.

Requirements for Freshman, Transfer, and Continuing Student applicants:

  • A completed online application. (Please do not send extraneous documents, i.e., resumes, awards; they will not be reviewed.)
  • Confirmation of acceptance to UNT. Our office will request from the UNT Admissions Office a previously submitted copy of your high school transcript, along with transcripts for all college work completed. Please note: delays in sending transcripts to UNT will delay the Honors College application process.

Important: It takes approximately three to four weeks to process completed applications and respond to the applicant through their UNT email.

Please contact Kelli Butler at for additional information.

Honors College members can also be Terry Scholars and McNair Scholars!

The prestigious Terry Scholarship helps future leaders of Texas achieve their academic goals. These competitive scholarships cover most educational costs for freshmen and transfer students so you can focus on your educational and personal success and graduate debt-free. Please visit for more information.

UNT's McNair Scholars Program provides faculty mentored undergraduate research experiences along with preparation to apply to and be admitted into graduate school for doctoral studies. Funding by the Department of Education and UNT provides stipends, travel funds, and other support to enhance Scholars research experience. Please visit for more information.

*Applying for Honors College membership, The Terry Scholarship, and the McNair Scholars Program are separate processes.
