The University of Central Arkansas has selected 75 incoming first-year students as Honors Scholars and 30 incoming first-year students as University Scholars for the fall semester.

The students entering the UCA Norbert O. Schedler Honors College in Conway have an average high school grade-point average above 4.0 and an average ACT college-entrance exam score of 29.

The incoming Honors College class includes 68 students from Arkansas and seven students from out of state. Some of them -- about a quarter of the group -- are the first in their families to go to college.

The University Scholars class includes 26 students from 23 Arkansas cities and four students from out of state.

University Scholars, which is in its second year, is an honors program that operates alongside the 37-year-old Norbert O. Schedler Honors College.
