This fall's inaugural Honors class has 70 students. They'll be working closely with renowned professors, guest lecturers, and other talented students in an environment that nurtures their growth -- academically, culturally, and personally.
Honors students also have access to substantial annual scholarships. To be accepted into our Honors Program, students must have a high school GPA of at least 3.25 and a combined SAT score of 1500, or ACT score of 24. These students will be eligible to receive a $12,000 annual scholarship as long as they maintain a 3.25 GPA.
We're also offering a second tier of scholarships for students who enter our Honors Program with a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher and a combined score of at least 1800 on the SAT or 28 on the ACT. These students will receive a $14,000 annual Honors Program scholarship for the first three years and a full tuition grant for the fourth year, as long as they maintain their 3.5 GPA and are positive role models on campus.
For more details on our Honors Program, read through the press release we issued last week announcing the news. We're looking forward to seeing the great accomplishments our Honors students achieve, and welcoming more dedicated students to our new program.
