Application to the Program

Honors applications for freshmen entering in fall of 2019 will be live on November 15, 2018!

Competitive applicants to the University Honors program generally have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and SAT scores of 1200+/ACT composite score of 26+.

University Honors students receive a $1,800 Honors scholarship in addition to other merit scholarships and financial aid.

Please note:


  • The Nursing major is compatible only with Innovations. Majors that are credit-intensive with required courses in the first year, such as science majors, fit best with the Innovations track.
  • At this time, engineering students cannot be admitted to the University Honors Programs because of class schedule conflicts.
  • Matteo Ricci students are ineligible for the University Honors Program because its program of study has a separate curriculum



Current SU Freshmen who wish to submit a late application for the current academic year should contact the program coordinator as soon as possible at
