Being selected for the Emerald Eagle Scholars Program is an honor and privilege. Through institutional, state, and federal grants, the university pays the average cost of tuition and mandatory fees up to 15 undergraduate credit hours each fall and spring semester to academically successful and committed students for four consecutive years.
Because many Emerald Eagle Scholars are the first in their families to attend college, they may face unique challenges. Understanding these challenges, UNT provides academic support to Emerald Eagle Scholars who are working hard to maintain at least a 2.5 UNT cumulative GPA and earn full time student status each fall and spring semester to meet the program requirements. We are committed to helping our Emerald Eagles succeed.
The benefits of this program are more than just financial:
The Emerald Eagle Scholars consistently earn more credit hours each semester and graduate in less time than their peers. UNT is very proud of these scholars!
