Admissions Criteria

The University Honors Center has a separate admissions process from the University as a whole. The criteria for admittance into the University Honors Center depend on a student’s classification and enrollment status.
First Time in College

All high school graduates with a minimum GPA of 3.50 on a 4.0 scale, and 1200 on the SAT or 27 on the ACT, are invited to apply for admission to the University Honors Center. Complete application packets must be submitted with the following information:

  • Two letters of recommendation
  • A copy of the high school transcript
  • Writing sample 
Current and Transfer Students
Continuing college and transfer students, and community college graduates with AA degrees, with a strong academic background and a minimum GPA of 3.20 on a 4.0 scale may also apply for admission to the University Honors Center. The latest point at which students may apply for admissions to the center is the first semester of their junior year.
In order to remain in the center, students must maintain a 3.0 GPA. Qualified applicants are accepted from all disciplines.
