Application to the Program

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 an annual $1,800 Honors scholarship in addition to other merit scholarships and financial aid.

Please note:

  • The Nursing major is compatible only with Innovations. Nursing majors should apply to the Innovations track
  • Diagnostic Ultrasound majors should apply to the Intellectual Traditions or Society, Policy & Citizenship track
  • String Performance majors should apply to the Intellectual Traditions track.
  • 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.
