Honors Scholarship Information
Effective Fall 2022
Students admitted to the Cole Honors College for fall 2022 will receive $650 per semester for eight semesters. 
Honors scholarships for students previously admitted are specified in the acceptance letter for that year.
Housing Scholarships
All students admitted to the Cole Honors College receive an honors housing award equal to the cost of a space in Lafayette. The award may be used as a credit toward the cost of a space in any traditional style hall, including Mattielou, Olive, Appleby, Hawthorne, Covington, Lafayette, Rice, or Rivers. 
In State Tuition
All domestic U.S. students admitted to the Cole Honors College receive in-state tuition. Continuation of the in-state rate depends on adherence to the terms and conditions of the University scholarship award as well as progress toward completion of Honors College requirements. For more information, please visit the Student Financial Services web site or contact the Honors office. 
Renewal
Semester renewal of Honors scholarships is contingent on academic eligibility, to include maintaining a 3.25 GPA on all courses applied to the UNA degree, adherence to University and Honors College standards, and progress toward completion of Honors College requirements.
Stacking
Honors College scholarships are generally stackable with other University and non-University scholarships and financial aid. (Note: in some instances, Honors scholarships can not be stacked with Athletic scholarships due to NCAA requirements.)
