Admission Requirements for Current Student Applicants

The University Honors Program seeks scholars interested in research, change agents interested in engaging local and global communities, and individuals seeking to explore their curiosity and express their creativity.  Participation in the University Honors Program is not a reward for past achievement; rather, we examine past achievement to better understand the potential in the individual applicant. Essays, college grade point averages, and a record of seeking challenges and taking on responsibilities help us better understand the whole person behind the application.

We will not consider current student applicants’ high school records; rather, we will review the college record. Current student applicants need to have at least a 3.3 Georgia Southern GPA, a letter of recommendation from a Georgia Southern professor, a record of engagement while in college, and brief answers to questions on how participation in the Honors Program will benefit their college education.  Admission is competitive as we have many more strong applicants than available spaces in the Program.

To apply, complete this application.

Applications are accepted at any time but the priority deadlines are:

Deadline for fall term admission: March 1

Deadline for spring term admission: October 1
