The UNT Excellence Scholarship level is determined by evaluation of students' high school transcript and class rank. If submitted, SAT or ACT scores will be considered in the evaluation for eligibility but are not required for consideration or receipt of the UNT Excellence Scholarship. Submitted test scores will only be considered in the evaluation for the UNT Excellence Scholarships if they assist the student's eligibility for the scholarship.
To be eligible for the UNT Excellence Scholarship, students must: Be a first-time freshman admitted to UNT for the fall term immediately following high school graduation; Be a full-time student taking a minimum of 12 UNT hours each fall and spring semester; Be admitted by the UNT Excellence Scholarship priority deadline. The Fall UNT Excellence Scholarship priority deadline for admission is March 1st. Students are advised to apply for UNT admission as soon as possible (including submitting all supporting admission documents) to meet this deadline. There is no separate application for the UNT Excellence Scholarship. Fall first-time freshman will be considered for this scholarship based on their admission application and supporting documents available at point of admission.
