Applying as an Incoming Freshman

UT Tyler Honors Program

Every year, The University of Texas at Tyler Honors Program seeks highly motivated and academically talented high school seniors to join UT Tyler's prestigious Honors Program.

Candidates who wish to apply to the Honors Program for the fall of 2023 will need to complete a scholarship application, following the information below. The application consists of biographical and academic information and includes an essay. SAT/ACT scores are not required. Once the completed application has been received, applicants may be invited to interview with the Honors Committee.

The Honors Committee will review all completed applications. A candidate's application is evaluated holistically (High School GPA, essay, and interview) and is not based on any single metric.


The application deadline to start Fall 2023 is December 1, 2022.
