Tuition & Financial Aid

Honors College Tuition

Clark Honors College students are assessed "Honors College Tuition" (HCT). The HCT rate is determined annually by the University of Oregon, Board of Trustees, and enables the CHC to provide small seminar-style classes, close advising by resident faculty, and other amenities. HCT will appear on each student's billing account. A limited number of Honors College Tuition Scholarships are available (to qualified applicants) from the CHC.

Scholarships 

The Robert D. Clark Honors College (CHC) awards need-based tuition-remission scholarships based on the expected family contribution listed on a student’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). No separate application is required; all applicants who apply for financial aid from the University of Oregon and complete the FAFSA are considered. Students must fulfill financial aid requirements in order to receive this scholarship; awards are limited to twelve terms.

After the CHC admissions review process is completed and decision letters are mailed, the Office of Financial Aid will make the determination as to the admitted students who are most qualified to receive the CHC’s need-based scholarships. Award letters for the CHC Tuition Remission scholarship and all other financial aid, will be mailed to students by April 1st.    

The University of Oregon offers multiple scholarships for incoming freshmen including the *Summit and Apex Scholarships. Oregon residents and out-of-state top scholars are automatically considered for both scholarships and are awarded based upon certain qualifications. For a list of the Summit and Apex Scholarship qualifications and information, click on the links below:

We also encourage incoming freshmen to investigate other resources offered by the University of Oregon, including the Presidential Scholarship, the PathwayOregon program and the Diversity Excellence Scholarships. You will find that information at the UO's Student Financial Aid and Scholarships site. Continuing students may apply for our internal CHC scholarships after enrolling in the CHC.

The CHC has one internal scholarship for international students; awards are based on academic merit. The Shephard Family Scholarship is open to incoming freshmen as well as continuing students and will be awarded at the close of the admissions cycle by the CHC’s faculty review committee.

*Not available to transfer applicants. Admission to the Clark Honors College does not guarantee a Summit Scholarship.
