Application Form for Transfer and Continuing Students

Admission to the Honors College is open to students who have exceptional academic backgrounds and an interest in continued rigorous collegiate-level coursework. Transfer students, with 60 semester credit hours or less, must complete the application for admission to the university as well as Honors College documents. Acceptance into the Honors College is based upon certain criteria.

All applicants must submit (a) a complete application electronically, (b) copies of their transcripts, and (c) a 700-word essay (approximately 2 to 3 pages, with a central thesis and strong supporting details) in which they respond to the question, "Why do I wish to enroll in the Honors College and what can I contribute to the program?"

Transfer and Continuing students with 60 semester credit hours or less, must also submit one (1) letter of recommendation - on the letterhead of the community college/university – preferably from a professor within their major discipline.
