The Entrance Scholar Awards are presented to first year students who achieve 560 points or more in their Leaving Certificate (or equivalent second level examination) in recognition of their academic accomplishment to date. Recipients are presented with a recognition certificate at a ceremony organised by the UCD Conferring Unit and their achievements are recorded on their academic transcript.
The Entrance Scholar award does not have a financial value, but the achievement of these
students is recognised at a ceremony in O’Reilly Hall each November, where students are
presented with a certificate.
