Accepted Students

Information for accepted current students and transfer students coming soon.


Information for accepted incoming first-year students for fall 2019:

During the application year for students coming to Georgia Southern in fall 2019, the University Honors Program has two deadlines: November 1 and February 1.  The first deadline is for students who wish to compete for the university’s top scholarships as well as for a place in the program.  The second deadline is the final deadline to apply for a place in the program.  Both deadlines apply to both the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses, and all scholarships offered by the Honors Program are applicable on both campuses.


Students accepted to join the University Honors Program on either campus:

Letter of Intent

If you have received your acceptance letter from the program, please be sure to send us your signed letter of intent! This is the only way we will know that you want to join our community of scholars, and we will then be able to plan for your participation. The letter of intent was included with your acceptance letter, and it may be sent to us at:

University Honors Program
P.O. Box 8130
Georgia Southern University
Statesboro, GA 30460

Fax: 912-478-0394

Or email to: Dr. Steven Engel

SOAR A Orientation Session
We want all students coming to the Statesboro Campus this fall to join us at Scholars SOAR Session A orientation. (Check back for dates.) Attending this session will allow you to be among the first of the incoming freshman class to register for fall semester classes. Please register for SOAR A here if you have not done so already.
Honors Living Learning Community and Housing
If you will live on campus during your first year, you may apply for housing here. Please remember that we have an Honors Living-Learning Community in Centennial Place Building Two. This Community is exclusively for incoming University Honors Program students. By living surrounded by other students just as dedicated to their academic pursuits, your drive to succeed will be fueled and matched. Lifelong friendships and networks are formed in the residence halls, and living in the Honors Community will give you proximity to your classmates from honors courses as you form study groups, hold movie nights, or just hang out and debate the big ideas until the wee hours. We want the Honors Living-Learning Community to be your new home, not to replace the one you left behind but rather to welcome you to your life as a scholar.
Survey of First-Year Honors Students
Finally, we will send a survey to all accepted students, who have sent in their letters of intent, in early May. It is important that you complete this survey by mid-May as it will help us place you in your Honors First-Year Experience Seminar and at least one honors section of a core course.

SOAR begins soon! Be sure to check your SOAR schedule for the Statesboro Campus for important Honors Program sessions!
