Honors College students are selected from a competitive process that includes an online application, letters of recommendation, official test scores, writing samples, and possibly an interview. To be considered for admission for the 2015-2016 academic year, students must submit a completed application file and supplemental materials by April 1, 2015. If you want to be considered for early action (non-binding), your online application must be completed and supplemental materials send by February 1, 2015.

If you meet The Honors College eligibility requirements then you will proceed to the next page of the application. Be certain to answer all of the questions completely. Should you miss any part of the answer to a question that is mandatory the system will prompt you with a message in red ink either at the top of the page or near the missed question to provide the information. Remember to upload the writing samples including the statement of purpose and essay.
If you are not eligible to apply to The Honors College, you will receive a notification message. Contact us only if you believe you received this message in error. (This means that you could establish that you do in fact meet the eligiblity requirements described in Step 3).
When you have completed all of the questions and uploaded your writing samples, you will receive a message that will state that your On-Line Application is complete. This does not mean that your Admission File is complete. Step 5 explains how to manage this process to complete your file.
As you review the application you will notice that test scores are required, two recommendations must be submitted, and transcript(s) must be received. Be certain to request all of these supplemental materials early. Your Admission File will not be considered complete until all of them are received.
It is your responsibility to check your online file to determine whether or not these items have been received. If you wish to receive consideration for early decision all of these materials must be received by February 1, 2015. Any admission file that is incomplete after that date will remain active until the final deadline: April 1, 2015.
