Honors Admission into the Program

Class of 2019 at Fall Orientation

Incoming Students

Admission into the Honors Program is competitive, and prospective students are encouraged to apply early. Decisions are made on a rolling basis and are determined by the following criteria:

  • High school GPA
  • Level of courses taken, including AP and Honors
  • Class rank
  • SAT/ACT score
  • Leadership experience
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Application essay

The ability to write clearly and effectively is a characteristic of successful Honors students. As such, the application essay is often the deciding factor; therefore, students must compose thoughtfully and edit rigorously before submitting the essay.

Applications may be obtained from the Honors Office or downloaded from the link below. Application submissions for the school year are due by June 1st.

Current Students

Current students may petition for admission during or past their freshman year with recommendations from college faculty. Application requirements are different from those of incoming students.
