Membership Benefits and Requirements

University Honors students receive a qualifying academic scholarship award each semester, and this award is bundled with a University Honors Stipend.

Renewal Requirements

All University Honors stipend recipients must participate in University Honors curriculum requirements, sophomore service requirement, and attend all Honors functions. Honors Stipend recipients must enroll in a minimum of 15 hours during the fall semester of the freshman year and complete a minimum of 15 hours with a 3.25 semester GPA to be eligible for the Honors Stipend the following semester. Recipients must enroll in a minimum of 15 hours for the spring semester and complete a total of 30 hours for the freshman year with a 3.25 semester GPA to be eligible for the stipend for the sophomore year. Renewal for subsequent semesters requires a 3.25 semester GPAand a minimum of 15 hours.  

Receipt, continued receipt, or renewal of all academic scholarships is also contingent upon the student honoring the Arkansas Tech University Code of Conduct and adhering to local, state, and Federal law. To receive the award in subsequent terms, the FAFSA and all requested documentation must be on file by August 1 of each year. Students who fail to meet participation renewal requirements are notified by the University Honors Director. A student who fails to meet academic renewal requirements is notified via official student email.

Grace Semester

All Honors students are eligible for a one-time Grace Semester. After a student's Grace Semester is used, failure to meet the renewal requirements in any semester will result in the forfeiture of the scholarship for all subsequent semesters.

To remain in compliance with Act 323 of 2009, the University reserves the right to cancel or modify any scholarship funded by the institution at any time.
