Pay through the online link at my.tcu.edu. See your TCU Admission packet for more specific instructions.

Is there a possibility I won’t get into Milton Daniel Hall, even if I pay my enrollment deposit and complete the online application on time?
Yes.  Because space is limited in Milton Daniel, there is the possibility that you will not be assigned space in Milton Daniel Hall. Bringing in a new class of students is a bit of an art and a bit of a science, and we do not know from year to year exactly how many students will decide to attend TCU and accept our invitation to join the John V. Roach Honors College.  Should there be more incoming Honors students than space in Milton Daniel Hall, room selection assignments will be based on a lottery system.  In the past we have been able to place most, if not all, incoming Honors students in Milton Daniel Hall.

Can I live in the Honors House with a non-Honors roommate?
Milton Daniel is typically only open to students in the Honors College, but there is a slim possibility that we can accommodate non-Honors roommates. Email honors@tcu.edu to request the link for the Milton Daniel Exception Request form.  This form must be completed no later than May 15.  Please note that completion of this form does not guarantee that your request will be granted.

What if I want/need to live in a residence hall other than Milton Daniel?
For extenuating circumstances, the Honors College will consider requests to live in a different residence hall or have a non-Honors roommate in Milton Daniel if space is available. Email honors@tcu.edu to request the link for the Milton Daniel Exception Request form.  This form must be completed no later than May 15.  Please note that completion of this form does not guarantee that your request will be granted.
