Honors Program Application

    The Honors Program encourages qualifying students to apply for admission to the Program. We look for students with demonstrated academic ability and a desire to learn and be challenged. Incoming students who have a minimum 3.5 high school GPA and an 1170 SAT score are sent applications. Students who do not receive application but who wish to be considered for the Program may apply directly to the Honors Program Director. 

    Students are able to join the Honors Program after their first semester or upon transfer to the University. College students wishing to join the program must have a collegiate GPA of 3.5, the recommendation of a professor and the approval of the Honors Director. Students wishing to join the program should submit a letter of intent to the Director.
