Applications are due each year on December 15th at midnight, see link below. Current first-year, second-year and transfer students are all encouraged to apply. Students meeting certain qualifications are invited to join the program upon entrance, but they still have to apply in December to finalize their membership.

Students typically apply in their first semester on campus. Information sessions take place in November, and applications are due in December. Prospective students are notified of their status in January and we induct new Honors Students in February.
