Submit the ApplyTexas Application early to ensure that all high school records and entrance exams are current with UNT for scholarship consideration. ApplyTexas Applications received after the admission priority deadline may not be complete in time for eligibility to be confirmed for the General Scholarship Application. Specific questions regarding your admission application should be directed to Undergraduate Admissions.
UNT is committed to providing the best undergraduate educational experience in Texas, and our renewable scholarships for incoming freshman is just one example of our commitment!
Awards range from $3,000 to 8,000 per year based on high school rank and test scores.
UNT Excellence Scholarships are available to entering freshman who are in the top 50% of their high school graduating class and score at least 1100 on the SAT or 24 on the ACT (written portions excluded). International students that are admitted as entering freshman are also considered for these scholarships, based on the required high school rank and test scores noted.
If you are considering attending UNT, please access the Scholarship Calculator to estimate your scholarship eligibility. Note: Students meeting the minimum criteria for both elements (high school rank and test score) may not meet eligibility requirements for an award.
Entering freshmen admitted for the fall term immediately following high school graduation are evaluated for scholarship awards based on completed admission and scholarship applications. UNT will continue to award these scholarships for the academic year (fall/spring) based on available funding, with priority consideration given to the earliest applicants. Students should ensure their most current transcripts and test scores are updated with Undergraduate Admissions.
