Admission and Scholarship Information

Students interested in the Honors Program must submit a separate Honors Program application. The Honors Program Selection Committee meets regularly beginning in January. The Committee 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 the priority deadline of February 1.

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 usually 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. They also tend to enjoy working at the intersection of ideas and experimenting with what different disciplinary investigations reveal about them. 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.

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.

Honors Suites are available on a first-come, first-served basis to incoming Honors Scholars who would like to live with other students engaged in the Honors curriculum. To be considered for those suites, Scholars must list Honors Suites as one of their preferences in their housing paperwork, as well inform the Honors Program office of their desire.
