Apply to the Honors College
Admission to the Honors College for entering freshmen is determined by several factors (see below), and space is limited. The deadline to apply is March 1 but we recommend that you apply earlier. Applicants will be notified by mail if they have been accepted. Applicants who have not received an acceptance letter by May 1 are automatically placed on a wait list and will be notified if and when space becomes available.
How to Apply
Submit the online Honors College application to be considered for admission.
Admission to the Honors College is competitive. Consideration will be given to the following:
- Entrance exam scores
- High School GPA and class rank
- Other evidence of high aptitude and motivation, including academic accomplishments and extracurricular experiences
- A writing sample, which may be satisfied by the student’s choice of (a) an SAT writing score (b) an ACT writing score or (c) a Presidential Scholarship essay written on campus at ACU
Students who are currently enrolled at ACU or are transferring to ACU from another undergraduate institution may contact the Honors College for instructions to apply.
These and any other questions about admission to the ACU Honors College can be directed to the Honors College Admissions Coordinator, Leslie Hayes.
