Application Process

Page address:

Honors Program admission criteria are based on a variety of areas. No predetermined test score or class rank guarantees or precludes admission. The selection committee considers the applicant's demonstrated academic excellence as well as character traits such as perseverance, inquisitiveness, and hard work.

To open the application files, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (the program can be downloaded free of charge at ). If you have problems opening the attachments, please contact Dr. Dahlman via e-mail for a copy.
