The Honors College admission is competitive. Candidates for admission must fulfill at least one of the following criteria depending on their classification:
- Entering Freshmen:
- Combined Reading/Writing and Math SAT score of 1270 (test taken during or after March 2016); Combined Critical Reading and Math SAT score of 1200 (test taken prior to March 2016)
- An ACT score of 27
- The upper 10% of their high school graduating class
- Currently enrolled or transfer students:
- A 3.35 G.P.A.
Though you must meet the above criteria, admission is not based solely on grades or scores. The Admissions Committee looks for evidence in the application of strong analytic and imaginative abilities. A good essay is an important consideration in the admission process.
