Admission to the Hicks Honors College

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2018. There are two ways to apply to the Hicks Honors College. You may apply when you are filling out your University of North Florida application by selecting that you are interested in the Hicks Honors College when prompted by the application. 


If you choose to apply after you have received admittance to UNF, you will need your university ID number (your N#) and will apply through your myWings account (within Student Self Service under the main Student tab). If you need help filling out your application, a PDF is available here for your reference to assist you in the application process.  


We consider 3 criteria when making admissions decisions for Hicks Honors College: essays, grade point average, and test scores. In addition to strong records of academic achievement, students who are accepted typically display evidence of community engagement and/or meaningful involvement in activities 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.  


If you have any Honors admissions questions, please call (904) 620-2649 or e-mail
