Admission to the Hicks Honors College

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. If you need help filling out your application, we have step by step application instructions for myWings available for your reference to assist you in the application process.


We consider academic ability and motivation, but also look at evidence of engagement-meaningful involvement in activities outside of academics, such as community involvement, leadership, etc. We look closely at the self-assessment and essays portion of the application in order to get a sense of you as a person. We consider GPA and test scores, but only in conjunction with the other components of the application. There is no absolute cutoff, but most often those who are accepted into the program have a weighted GPA of 4.0 or above, an SAT of 1200 of above (or an ACT of 26 or above). Though letters of recommendation are not required, they are often helpful in giving us other perspective(s) on your motivation, abilities, and accomplishments, so we encourage and welcome you to submit them (instructions are on the application form). If you would like to submit them please email your letter(s) to
