Tuition & Financial Aid

Honors College Tuition

Clark Honors College students are assessed "Honors College Tuition" (HCT). The HCT rate is determined annually by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education, 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. 

Below is the Honors College tuition schedule for students entering CHC beginning fall 2013.

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 these, and all other financial aid, will be mailed to students beginning April 1st.    

Western Undergraduate Exchange scholarships will not be offered to new students entering after the fall of 2013. Past WUE scholarship offers to Clark Honors College students will be honored. In order to maintain eligibility for the award, Clark Honors College WUE recipients must:

  • maintain enrollment in Clark Honors College
  • maintain a cumulative UO GPA of 3.0 or above
  • maintain academic progress for degree completion

Awards are renewable for a total of 12 terms (fall, winter, spring only), which must be completed within 5 years from the time of initial enrollment.

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.

The University of Oregon announces two new scholarships for incoming freshmen! Starting fall 2012, Oregon residents and out-of-state (domestic) top scholars will automatically receive either the *Summit Scholarship or the Apex Scholarship award, based on a set criteria.

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.

*Transfer applicants and continuing non-WUE UO students are not eligible for consideration.
