Students are invited into the Honors Program on the basis of a high level of past academic performance (minimum 3.50 cumulative index, including transfer coursework). In the case of incoming freshmen, correlative entrance exam scores (SAT total = 1150 minimum or ACT score of 26) and GPA of over 3.5. All invited students receive a letter from the Honors Director. Students may be accepted into the Honors Program at any point in their academic careers. However, late admission may mean that a student will not be able to complete the requirements of the Honors Program. Any student who feels she/he can succeed at and benefit from Honors work is welcome to speak to the Honors director about participating.
