Initial Eligibility

Requirements for New Freshmen

In addition to meeting the following high school grade point and standardized testing criteria, Honors College applications must be postmarked or submitted electronically by February 1, 2014, in order to be considered for the normal admission process into the Honors College. Applications submitted after this date will be considered only if space is available.

Criteria for normal admission:

  • ACT composite score of 27 or higher (or SAT total score of 1220 or higher) with a high school grade point average of 3.75 or higher. (Weighted high school grade point averages that are certified by high schools may be used.)
  • Note: Freshmen failing to earn at least 3.20 OSU and cumulative grade point averages during the fall semester are not eligible for continued enrollment in honors courses in the subsequent spring semester.
  • You may also choose to submit an optional essay that you certify as your own original work.
  • If you choose to write an essay to be considered with your Honors College application, your essay must be submitted at the same time as your online, .pdf, or paper application.
  • Honors College essay questions are separate from all OSU Undergraduate Admissions application questions. Please be sure you have completed all necessary requirements for admission to OSU.
