All students with ACT English and Reading scores of 24 and above (freshman status) may apply for admission to University Honors. New students are admitted provisionally to either the General Studies Honors or University Honors based on the following criteria:
After meeting established criteria and performing well academically the first semester (as determined by first semester Honors faculty and the Honors Director), new students may move from provisional to full status as Honors students.
To schedule an interview, see the Honors website: http://www.gallaudet.edu/Honors_Program/Admission_to_Honors.html
Upon review, some students may also be placed in Bridge to Honors, which clusters students needing an additional semester to adjust to college or to develop skills for success in Honors. Students may be considered for Honors from Bridge with recommendations from two first semester professors and an in person interview; sometimes the student may also submit a writing sample. Any student currently enrolled in the University also may apply to Honors following these requirements and a required submission of a writing sample.
Note: Students with Bridges to Honors will not be eligible for Honors scholarships until officially enrolled into the program.
