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. White via e-mail for a copy.

New Students

To apply for the Honors Program, students must submit the following forms directly to the Honors Program Office (via e-mail or mail):

  1. [PDF] New Student Honors Program Application (111 KiB) 
  2. [PDF] Two Letters of Recommendation (82 KiB)

The priority application deadline for high school seniors is February 28th  (for fall admission). We will continue reviewing applications for fall semester as space permits. This is a program specific application. It is not the same application used to apply to the University. You can find the application and recommendation forms above. Presidential Scholarship applicants will be considered for the Honors Program using the Presidential Scholarship application materials.
