How to Join the Honor’s Program


For Entering First-Year Students:

Admitted students with a minimum 3.5 GPA and 1170 SAT (combined SAT Mathematics and Critical Reading score) or an ACT of 26 will automatically receive an invitation to the Honors Program. Students who meet these requirements and wish to join must simply notify the Honors Program in early May.

For Transfer and Currently Enrolled Students:

A 3.3 college GPA or above, the recommendations of two instructors that speak to the student’s ability to thrive in the Honors program, and a brief 1000 word essay that explains coherently and passionately why Honors is a match for the students are all required (documents and unofficial transcripts can all be emailed as .doc or .docx attachments; faculty recommendations should be sent directly from faculty). All applications will be considered on an individual basis, and final acceptance will be determined by the Honors Committee.

Also: transfer students who have completed an HTCC Honors Transfer Program with an overall transfer GPA of 3.3 will be admitted to Honors and will also have the 24 required ULV Honors elective credits reduced to 12.
