The Honors Program is open by competitive admission to academically superior students, usually defined as those who meet any one of the following qualifications: Top 20% of high school class, 1100+ combined SAT scores (on new 2016 version), or Verbal SAT score of 600+. Please note that these qualifications alone do not guarantee automatic admission to the Program. Students who have equivalent qualifications are also encouraged to apply. The program objectives aim for high academic standards of achievement.
