The level of the scholarship is determined taking into account the classification and performance of a student at SAT or ACT. Please note that the classification or success of a specific class in a standardized test does not guarantee receipt of an excellence scholarship or a specific reward level. Students must meet the UNT minimum admission requirements to be considered for a UNT Excellence Scholarship.
The scholarship estimator can help you determine the level of scholarship for which you may be eligible. The actual level of the scholarship will be based on your official academic records used for admission to the UNT.

Eligible non-Texas residents and international students are also considered for the UNT Excellence Scholarships.
Non-residents of Texas and international students who receive an excellence scholarship qualify for state tuition fees for the following fall, spring and summer terms.
Non-resident Excellence Scholarship recipients living outside of Texas while taking UNT courses (typically online) are charged an Out-of-State Teaching Fee (OSTF) in lieu of tuition and instructional fees. This fee must cover the cost of instruction and is set by each academic department annually. Excellence Scholarship recipients paying OSTF do NOT qualify for in-state tuition rates.
