Tuition & Financial Aid

As a public university, we are dedicated to making a high quality, liberal arts and sciences education available to all qualified students. Each year, over 90% of Clark Honors College students receive substantial scholarship support through merit-based and need-based aid packages.

All questions regarding tuition and scholarships should be directed to the UO Office of Financial Aid.

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.

Students who suddenly find themselves in financial crisis and/or changed financial circumstances may formally apply to the CHC for Emergency Bridge Funding for CHC differential tuition for one term. Additional information and application instructions can be found on the CHC’s student Canvas site


The Clark Honors College has its academic home in Chapman Hall, and its residential home in the New Residence Hall (Building B) and neighboring Justice 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
