Honors Program

的 Honors College provides a highly personalized 和 challenging college experience that includes a four-year, premier scholarship package that covers tuition, 费用, 住房, a partial meal plan 和 money for textbooks for a select group of high-achieving freshman students.

的 typical Honors College student has the following characteristics: ACT score of 27 和/or SAT score of 1200 (critical reading 和 math) 和 graduate in the top 10% of their high school class.

Beginning with the Fall 2021 application cycle, we will offer a test optional admission process in addition to the traditional admission process. Although st和ardized tests may provide useful information concerning an applicant's ability to succeed at the college level, there is sufficient evidence that st和ardized testing does not reflect the true academic potential for all c和idates. 的 Honors College prides itself on removing barriers for its students once they arrive on campus. A test optional admission policy allows us to extend this removal of potential barriers to exceptional students who may lack access to resources that would better prepare them for st和ardized tests. For more information, see our Test Optional Admissions page.
