Admissions Requirements

Applicants must have a cumulative high school G.P.A of 3.5 or higher.  Our ideal students have been involved in a range of extra and co-curricular activities throughout their education, including leadership roles, volunteering, employment, international exchanges, and more.  Many of our students take AP or other college level courses during high school.  If you feel you meet these requirements you are encouraged to apply to our Honors Program.  If you have any questions about this please schedule a “Prospective Student” appointment with one of our advisors.

You should apply as a 4-year Honors Student if you have earned fewer than 43 college credits.
