Catalogue 2012 - 2013


Entering freshmen with a high school GPA of at least 3.5 and SAT scores of 1100 or better will be invited to submit a written application to the Honors Program. Students who do not meet these criteria but still strongly wish to be considered for acceptance into the program are also encouraged to apply. In some cases, the Honors Admissions Committee may wish to interview applicants. Admission decisions will be made by the Honors Admissions Committee before and during the Summer Orientation and Registration Program (SOAR).

Transfer students entering Western New England University who achieved at least a 3.5 GPA at their previous colleges, may apply for admission to the Honors Program. At the discretion of the Director, transfer credit from three honors courses at other schools may be awarded up to a maximum of nine semester-hours. Second semester Western New England University freshmen may also apply for admission to the Honors Program if they have compiled a 3.5 GPA in their first semester at the University. If admitted, these students will enter the Honors Program in the fall of their sophomore year.
