Types of Honors College Scholarships.

Only incoming high school graduates are eligible for Honors College scholarships. They may be either Academic Scholarships or Housing Waiver scholarships.

Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships of up to $1,500 per year are offered to Honors College students. They are renewable for four years as long as you maintain a minimum GPA of 3.50.

Housing Waiver

A Housing Waiver scholarship is equivalent to one-half the cost of a room in the Highlands or Towers residence halls (approximately $3,000). The Housing Waiver Scholarship is for the freshman year only and is nonrenewable.

The application deadlines for Honors College admission and Honors scholarship consideration are November 1 Early Action, February 1 Priority Deadline, and April 1 Final Deadline.  By April 1, most if not all of the Honors scholarships will have been awarded.  However, exceptional late-arriving applications could result in an Honors scholarship offer if an earlier recipient chooses not to accept his or her award. 


Please review the following checklist before starting your application:
