Current Georgia Southern Students

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.

How to Apply

We have two deadlines per semester for current student applications: priority and final.

The first deadline in each semester is a priority deadline.  All complete applications with letters of recommendation at the priority deadline will be reviewed and decisions will be made in time to take advantage of Honors Priority Registration at the end of the priority deadline’s month.  Incomplete applications will not be considered, and students have until the final deadline to submit missing application materials. Incomplete applications at the final deadline will not be considered and will be discarded. Decisions on these applications will be made after that semester’s final grades have posted.

Priority Deadline for fall term admission: March 1

Final Deadline for fall term admission: May 1

Priority Deadline for spring term admission: October 1

Final Deadline for spring term admission: December 1
