Honors College Tuition

In the Clark Honors College we keep classes small, with an average of 15 students per class, and no more than 19 students. All of our classes are taught by professors, not graduate students. You will have access to dedicated advising resources, and assistance qualifying for and applying to prestigious national scholarships. We provide social and academic spaces just for honors college students, including a student kitchen and lounge, computer lab with subsidized printing, and honors library. Honors College Tuition (HCT) makes this possible.

HCT will appear on your student billing account each term, except for summer. If you take summer courses, HCT will not be charged. We are able to offer a limited number of Honors College Tuition Scholarships, which are distributed on the basis of demonstrated financial need. See below for complete details.


The Clark Honors College has its academic home in Chapman Hall, and its residential home in the Global Scholars Hall (GSH) and neighboring Bean Hall. Incoming first-year Clark Honors College students are given priority registration for these residence halls, however you are not required to live in CHC designated housing
