Admission and Scholarship Information

Students interested in the Honors Program must submit a separate Honors Program application to the Honors Program office.

Students who desire to discuss and debate difficult ideas and to take up those big questions that seem to elude satisfactory resolution are ideal candidates for the Honors Program. Such candidates enjoy reading, writing, and conversing about how a text or an argument at hand, contributes to our understanding of the world in which we live. Successful applicants usually score in the 95th percentile on national collegiate entrance exams (ACT or SAT), earn a high school grade point average of at least 3.5, or rank in the top 10 percent of their graduating classes.

Applications are accepted at any time, but early applicants are given priority. The Honors Program admissions committee meets regularly beginning in January, and they will accept, waitlist, or deny applications as they are received and until the class is filled. Students who envision the Honors Program as part of their college experience, are strongly encouraged to submit their applications by February 1st.  

The Honors Program application may be printed and returned to Honors Program, The University of Tulsa, McFarlin Library, Room 5130, 800 South Tucker Drive, Tulsa, OK 74104-9700. A brochure and application can be mailed to you by contacting Denise Dutton at (918) 631-2122 or

An Honors Program scholarship is given annually to each participant. For more information about the Honors Program scholarship, contact the University of Tulsa financial aid office at (918) 631-2526.
