Current High School Students
Applicants are considered for admission on the basis of their high school grade point average (GPA), Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or ACT score, plus a activities/leadership resume. Statistical minimums are generally a 3.50 high school G.P.A, an SAT score of 1150 (reading and math sections) or an ACT of 21. However, no one is a “walking number” in Honors.
Students who do not meet these minimums yet still wish to work in a more challenging environment are welcome to apply. The activities/leadership resume is a key part of the application.
Current WOU or Transfer Students
The Honors Program requires three years to complete.
It is incompatible with any programs that require students to transfer for their junior/senior year (pre-nursing) or have a separate liberal arts track (Bachelor of Music degrees). Depending on credits, transfer or current students who expect to be at WOU for three years can be admitted. Please contact the Honors Office to see if this would make sense for you.
Because the Honors Program is an alternate General Education pathway, students with a complete associate’s (AAOT) degree should not apply (because they have already satisfied those requirements).
