Eligibility Requirements

Students seeking admission to Honors courses are reviewed by the Honors Committee on the basis of past performance as measured by ACT scores, high school records, diagnostic writing samples, previous college-level coursework, and/or college instructor recommendations.

Students may be admitted to a course as follows:

  • First-time students ideally should have an ACT composite score of 23 or above, although lower scores will be considered, and a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • Students who have taken collegiate courses must have a 3.0 collegiate average.
  • Students who do not meet the requirements listed above may still enroll in an Honors course upon the approval of the professor teaching the course.
  • Students receiving a grade of C or below in an Honors course may be prevented from enrolling in future Honors courses by the Honors Committee regardless of the student's overall GPA.
