Admission to the Hicks Honors College

Application: Once you have been accepted into the University of North Florida, you may apply to the Hicks Honors College. We will be accepting applications for Fall 2016 in the Fall of 2015 through the Spring 2016.

We consider 3 criteria when making admissions decisions for Hicks Honors College: essays, grade point average, and test scores. Students who are accepted typically display community engagement and passions outside of academics. We are looking for well-rounded students who are able to balance high engagement and academic success.​

We look closely at the two 250 word essays to get an idea of you as a person. In terms of GPA and test scores, students who are accepted into the Hicks Honors College usually have earned a weighted GPA of 4.0-4.9, and SAT of 1250-1510 or ACT of 26-36. You can also add other material to your Honors application to help us understand you better, such as a resume and/or a letter of recommendation.

Our application is available online through your myWings account..
