Future Students may apply to the Honors College after they have been admitted to The University of Alabama. Learn more about admission to UA.
The requirements for admission to the Honors College are a 30 ACT/1360 SAT and a 3.5 high school GPA or higher. Because of our commitment to meeting the needs of students from within the state, Alabama high school graduates have another path to admission if they are within the top 5% of their class and have at least a 28 ACT/1310 SAT or higher and a 3.5 or higher 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. All students who apply with more than 25 hours are required to draft a plan to finish all honors coursework prior to admission. You will be notified of your acceptance via email.
