Incoming Freshmen

Changes to Honors College as of Fall 2020

Thank you for your interest in our Honors programs. For the past 12 years, we have been privileged to offer prospective students a four year honors experience via two avenues, the Honors College and Regents Scholars Program. Because of the tremendous success of our programs and students, Texas A&M University-Commerce will be expanding our Honors College scholarship program. The Regents Scholars Program will be absorbed into the Honors College and a third professional track will be offered.

Beginning with the current application cycle for the Fall 2020 cohort, we will increase the number of scholarship offers to approximately 100 incoming freshmen, all of whom will be members of the Honors College. Scholarship offers will range from 50% to 100% cost of attendance to be assigned at the time of scholarship acceptance. In line with current industry standards and best high impact practices, our capstone requirements will be determined based on a combination of scholarship amount and student goals. Capstone experiences could include: a) completion of an honors thesis, b) a group study abroad experience, or c) a competitive internship option.

Feel free to reach out to our office for clarification on the exciting changes and growth of our programs. As always, thank you for your continued support of our Honors College.

First-time, full-time freshmen are eligible to apply for the Honors College scholarship, which seeks out incoming freshmen who display exceptional academic competency. Prospective students can apply via an online application found in the lefthand link “2020 Honors College Application”. An on-campus interview with the Honors council will determine fit for a particular scholarship.

Current/transfer students may apply to the Honors Scholar Program or Global Scholar/Global Learner Program here.
