Each year, approximately 15 new students are invited to join the Honors Program. A few additional students with outstanding academic performance in their first semester or first year may be invited to join the program at the beginning of their second or third semester.
Admission into the program is competitive, and prospective students are encouraged to apply for general admission to the College early. A selected number of accepted students are invited to Emory & Henry College’s annual Scholarship Day. Successful candidates are awarded an Honors Scholarship and admission to the program. Decisions to invite students into the Honors Program are determined by the following criteria.
Students who do not meet the minimum GPA and test score requirements may still be considered depending upon the strength of their high school curriculum, special gifts and talents, and specific knowledge areas conducive to the Honors environment.
