Beginning with incoming freshman applicants for Fall 2018, the requirements for admission to the Honors College will be a 30 ACT/1390 SAT (new) and a minimum 3.5 high school GPA. Through this change in admission requirements, the Honors College will increase its selectivity and ensure that we continue to recruit and engage academically prepared and talented students. Because of our commitment to meeting the needs of students from within the state, Alabama high school graduates will have another path to admission if they are within the top 5% of their class and have at least a 28 ACT/1310 SAT (new) and a 3.5 GPA.
Although there is no formal deadline to apply to the Honors College, incoming freshmen should apply as soon as possible to facilitate registration for Honors Housing and Honors Orientation. All eligible students who apply after the registration deadline for a semester will be admitted for the next semester.
Current UA Students admitted as full-time undergraduates 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.
