Eligibility and Membership Requirements

The Honors College is only open to undergraduate students pursuing their first Bachelors Degree.

Freshman Applicants are required to submit (1) a high school transcript that includes GPA and class rank, (2) a personal statement and (3) resume. We consider the student’s academic record in light of the types of courses taken and the nature of their high school curriculum.

Transfer Students and Currently Enrolled UNT Students submit (1) transcripts for completed college work, (2) a personal statement and (3) resume. In general, students with more than 72 hours completed and in-progress are not considered for admission to the Honors College. 

Honors College members pay a $25 program fee each semester. This fee provides students with Honors College benefits of priority registration, advising, access to Honors College courses, and extensive co-curricular programming. If a student admitted to the Honors College does not activate their membership by enrolling in an Honors College course, the fee is fully refunded and will not be charged in subsequent semesters.
