Applications for admission to the Honors Program are accepted on a rolling basis; however, students seeking priority scholarship consideration should apply before January 31st.
The Honors Council, comprised of a faculty representative from each school on campus, reviews completed applications year-round, and they typically reach a decision within 2-3 weeks of receiving an application. Students are notified via email of the Council’s decision.
The Honors application asks you to articulate your goals and interests, and you’ll also be asked to provide contact information (name and email address) for up to three people who can speak to us about your intellectual and personal interests and strengths. You’ll also be asked to provide information from your previous academic institution(s), including GPA. You may also provide test scores, but this information is optional rather than required. Finally, you’ll be asked to introduce yourself to the Honors Council by providing a short (1000-2000 words) essay response to one of three prompts.
