The Honors Program

HonorsThe Honors Program is designed to stimulate and challenge students intellectually and to give them exceptional academic and co-curricular opportunities to work at a very high level of accomplishment throughout their undergraduate years. The Program is affiliated with the National Collegiate Honors Council.

Depending on the student's academic profile, admission to the Program may be by invitation by the Director of Admissions (for incoming freshman Founder’s Scholarship and President’s Scholarship recipients) or by application to the Director of the Honors Program. Applications for admission to the Program are accepted no later than three weeks before the first registration period of the first semester of student's sophomore year. The College reserves the right to determine membership in the Honors Program. Students must maintain a 3.50 GPA each semester. Those who fall below the minimum GPA any given semester are placed on probation from the Program but may reapply the next semester that their GPA has reached or exceeded the Program's minimum, but they may reapply only once. Applications for admission or readmission to the Program include two letters of recommendation from faculty members and a written essay expressing interest in the Program. Applications should be made to the Director of the Honors Program.
