Admission to the Honors College is a rigorous process. Candidates for admission must fulfill at least one of the following criteria, depending on their classification:
- Combined Evidence-Based Reading/Writing and Math SAT score of 1270
- ACT score of 27
- Graduation in the upper 10 percent of their high school class (U.S. high schools only)
Currently Enrolled Students
- 3.35 cumulative GPA after taking twelve hours at UTA and a minimum of 60 credit hours remaining to complete your degree
- 3.35 cumulative transfer GPA on a scale of 4.0 (the average GPA from all colleges attended prior to UTA) and a minimum of 60 credit hours remaining to complete your degree
The criteria above are minimums. Admission is not based solely on grades or scores. The admissions committee looks for evidence of strong analytical skills and college level writing ability; thus, a strong essay is an important consideration in the admissions process.
