Honors College Online Application
Requirements for Admission

The Honors College admission is competitive. Candidates for admission must fulfill at least one of the following criteria depending on their classification:

  • Entering Freshmen:
    • A combined Critical Reading and Math SAT score of 1200
      (The total of 1200 does not include the Writing score.)
    • An ACT score of 27
    • The upper 10% of your 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 strong essay is an important consideration in the admission process.

Before You Use the Online Application System
