Honors Program

The University of Texas Permian Basin Honors Program provides a one-of-a-kind experience for academically talented students. The Honors Program is open to students across all academic disciplines.

Honors Program Requirements:

  • Minimum 3.5 high school GPA (on a 4.0 scale)
  • 1100 SAT or 24 ACT
  • UTPB recognizes that high school GPAs and standardized tests will not measure each student's academic capabilities and talents. A student who does not meet the initial requirements may submit an application to the Honors Program along with two letters of recommendation from former teachers.
  • Automatic admission to the Honors Program will be granted to any student who:
    • is a National Merit Scholar
    • is a Hispanic Merit Scholar
    • has earned an International Baccalaureate degree
