Should I submit an application essay?
Applicants to the Honors Tutorial College are required to submit a series of essays as part of the HTC application supplement.
For applicants who have been out of high school for more than one year, the essay is required. The essay is optional for all other applicants. Applicants may use the essay to convey any information he or she feels will be helpful in the decision process. Topics may include, for example, academic challenges he or she has faced, the applicant's academic and career objectives, or his or her involvement in community affairs.
