Student Admission Criteria
While all of the expectations listed below are important, the Honors Admissions Council considers each applicant individually and comprehensively. Selection to the program is competitive and applications are considered as they are received. Since there are limited spaces available in our program, early application to ISU and the University Honors Program can significantly improve a student’s chances of admission.
The Admissions Council will consider applicants who do not meet the admissions criteria if there are remaining openings in the program after February 15, 2016. If you send in an application and then receive a better ACT or SAT score at a later date, you MUST contact the Honors Program in order for your application to be reconsidered.
