Honors Transfer Student Application
Closed on 8/15/2020 at 11:59 PM.
Transfer students may apply each spring for entry the following fall.
Application DetailsTransfer students may apply each spring for entry in the fall (spring transfers should use the Continuing Student application). This application requires students to have a strong academic history at their sending institution and have developed a plan for completing distinction requirements. Transfer Student applicants are strongly encouraged to meet with an Honors Advisor to help develop this plan prior to application.
Review of applications will be conducted on a rolling basis. Applications are evaluated on the basis of the student’s record of academic achievement and demonstrated potential for creativity, intellectual ability, imagination, curiosity, willingness to try new things and self-awareness as demonstrated in their application essay. Once admitted to the Honors Fellows curriculum, students are designated as “Honors Students” and may then access specific privileges and resources, including additional advising, priority registration, contracting non-honors courses for Honors credit, Honors Independent Study, and enrolling in graduate-level courses for undergraduate Honors credit. Honors Students also receive priority for advising for competitive national fellowships.
Applications received after February 1 may not be assigned an Honors Priority Registration start time for Fall preregistration.
