Eligibility for the University Fellows Experience

A student with an ACT score of 32 or a SAT score of 1420 (evidence-based reading and writing plus math) and a high school GPA of 3.8 who is accepted into UA will be eligible to complete the University Fellows Experience application. Applicants must first complete the Honors College application, and then must complete the UFE application. The general UFE application deadline is December 15.

A student eligible for the Honors College (ACT of 28 or SAT score of 1300 [evidence-based reading and writing plus math] and a high school GPA of 3.5) may be nominated for consideration by a high school representative or a UA faculty member if he/she does not meet the general requirements for UFE consideration. The online nomination form (including the student's full contact information and letter of recommendation) must be completed by a high school representative or UA faculty member. The deadline for nominations is December 9.

The UFE selection committee will consider the candidate's record of impact in their community, leadership achievements, extracurricular activities, and the candidate's essays much more heavily than grades and test scores. The UFE seeks students who ultimately will make a difference throughout their lives.
