Application to the Program

The application is now live for Early Action applicants. You will find an invitation to apply to the program in your Seattle University Application Portal once you submit your application to the university.

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
  • 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.
