Admission to Honors

Future Students starting Fall 2014 may apply to the Honors College after they have been admitted to The University of Alabama. Admission to the Honors College requires a 28 ACT or 1250 SAT and a minimum 3.5 high school GPA. You will be notified of your acceptance via email. (If your test scores are below the Honors College requirement, you can be admitted later after you have successfully achieved a 3.3 in your college coursework.)

Current UA Students with at least 12 UA hours and a minimum 3.3 overall GPA and Incoming Transfer Students with at least 12 overall hours and a minimum 3.3 overall GPA will be accepted to the Honors College upon submission of their applications. Starting Fall 2014, all Current UA Students must apply within their first academic year on campus to be eligible for admission. All students who apply with greater than 60 hours are required to draft a plan to finish all honors coursework prior to admission. You will be notified of your acceptance via email.
