Outstanding Students Qualify for Awards
The University of Texas at Tyler recognizes students’ academic achievements and exceptional talents through merit- and talent-based scholarships. New freshmen who are accepted for admission are automatically considered for scholarships. No additional application is necessary.
- Academic scholarships are based on such qualifications as high school class rank, standardized test scores and prior grades.
- Fifty-six percent of first-time undergraduate students at UT Tyler receive grants and/or scholarships to contribute to education costs.
- Students may receive only one academic scholarship award from UT Tyler per semester. They are, however, eligible to receive separate talent awards and external scholarship awards.
- New for 2011-12: The new UT Tyler Challenge Scholarship awards one scholarship to a student at each of 15 top feeder schools for the coming academic year. The scholarship covers tuition and mandatory fees (no course fees) up to 18 credit hours each semester (fall and spring only) and is renewable for 3 consecutive academic years.
- Students who receive the National Merit Finalist, National Merit Semi-Finalist, Regents, Patriot, Patriot Achievement, Presidential or graduate scholarships are not eligible for additional scholarship funding for the summer semesters.
- Use the college cost calculator to estimate costs as well as possible scholarship options.
