Requirements for Admission
Before you apply to the Honors College, you must be admitted to the university.
Candidates for admission to the Honors College must fulfill at least one of the following criteria depending on their classification:
- Combined Evidence-Based Reading/Writing and Math SAT score of 1270
- An ACT score of 27
- Graduation within the upper 10% of your high school class (U.S. high schools only)
Current UT Arlington students:
- A 3.35 cumulative Grade Point Average after 12 hours at UT Arlington and a minimum of sixty hours remaining in your degree plan.
- A 3.35 cumulative transfer Grade Point Average on a scale of 4.0 (the average GPA from all colleges attended prior to UT Arlington) and a minimum of sixty hours remaining in your degree plan.
The criteria above are minimums. Admission is not based solely on grades or scores. The Admissions Committee looks for evidence in the application of strong analytical skills and college-level writing ability; thus, a strong essay is an important consideration in the admissions process. Applicants will be notified of their status via an email to their MavMail account.
Instructions for filling out the application
The required essay and résumé must be uploaded as Adobe PDF documents. You need to complete your application in one online session. If a file is discarded or cannot be opened, the Honors College will make an effort to contact you by means of the contact information you provide in your application. Until all the materials are provided, your application will not be processed.
