How to Apply

For admission criteria and a general profile of applicants to Clark Honors College, please see our Fact Sheet.  

Applicants to Clark Honors College must complete a single online application to apply to both the CHC and the University of Oregon at one time. The Clark Honors College application must also include an essay, description of accomplishments, and two teacher recommendations. Please visit the detailed guidelines for the required materials.

If you have already applied online for UO admission and now wish to apply for admission to Clark Honors College, you will need to complete the Supplemental PDF application to apply for winter term or fall term 2017. Winter term admission is on a space available basis.

International Students who also wish to apply to the Clark Honors College must complete both an International University application and the Supplemental PDF application. We will begin accepting applications again in August for fall term 2017.

Students currently enrolled at the University of Oregon who have an excellent academic record and who wish to transfer into Clark Honors College, must submit a Supplemental PDF application to apply for admission for winter term or fall term 2017. Winter term admission is on a space available basis. Spring term admission is not available. 

Note: Deadlines to apply are the same for Domestic and International Freshmen and Transfer applicants. Transfer applicants must adhere to the Clark Honors College application deadlines and not the University of Oregon’s transfer applicant deadline.
