How to apply to the Honors College
The Honors College application form is accessed through the general University admissions portal. You must create an account and apply to the University prior to applying to the Honors College. Once you have applied for admission to the University, access the portal again and select “Application for Honors College Admissions” from the drop-down menu to apply to the Honors College.
In order to complete the Honors College application form, applicants must enter basic demographic and educational information as well as information on significant past activities. A 500-word essay is also required. In order to complete the essay, select the honors mission pillar that interests you most and/or responds best to your strengths and describe how membership in the Honors College will support your development in this area. The honors living learning community application is included (see below).
Admissions decisions are released via the application portal, and applicants must log back in to the portal to accept admission to the Honors College. Applicants are encouraged to monitor the status of their recommendations by logging into the application portal. Applications cannot be reviewed until both recommendations have been received. Additional copies of test scores and transcripts are not required by the Honors College.
