Applying to Honors

The Honors Program is a restricted admissions program; only students admitted to the Honors Program are eligible to complete Honors courses. Prospective Honors students should possess the ability to think and work independently, to write clearly and purposefully, and to cooperate in the spirit of discovery and understanding. The Honors Program encourages applications from all interested students and enrolls individuals into the program based on evidence of their potential to benefit from, and contribute to, Honors courses. We ask that students provide us with information that demonstrates their interest, motivation, preparation and potential for this form of study.
