Eligibility Requirements

Fall 2018 Update: Out of concern for applicants that have been affected by natural disasters around the country, the University of Houston has extended the priority deadline for scholarship consideration from November 15, 2017 to January 3, 2018. Students who wish to compete for the Tier One Scholarship will have until January 3 to complete the Tier One Scholarship application. Please note that the Tier One Invitational, originally scheduled for January 13, 2018, will not occur on that date. As additional information is available, it will be posted here.

To compete for the Tier One Scholarship, incoming freshman students should complete the Tier One Scholarship application and the application for admission to the University of Houston. Both applications should be completed as soon as possible but no later than January 3, 2018.

Applicants who have a 1400 SAT Total (ERW + Math) or 30 ACT Composite score, and who rank in the top 10% of their high school graduating class, will improve their odds of qualifying for the scholarship.

See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the Tier One selection process.
