Applying to the Program

Eligibility for the Honors Program

The Honors program currently accepts applications from entering first-year students during the spring of their senior year in high school and from transfer students with at least two years remaining to complete their degree.

Most participants are invited to apply on the basis of their overall academic credentials. However, because strong candidates do occasionally slip past the selection process, any student is eligible to apply for the program.

While every application is considered on its overall merit, most candidates will present SAT scores of 1410 or better, with a minimum of 600 on each side; a solid academic curriculum for all four years of secondary school; plus a class rank in the top quintile. The admissions committee pays particularly close attention to the writing sample.

Please note that, after filling out the online application, you will receive a confirmation that it has been successfully completed. You might, however, need to scroll up to see this confirmation!

Application Instructions:

  • Select “2020 Special Programs and Scholarships” from the first selection list.
  • Select “Stetson University Honors Program" from the second selection list.
