Application Information

The University Honors Program invites applications from incoming freshman, incoming transfer students and current RMU students.  The University Honors Program is designed for the full-time student who will enroll in the on-ground honors curriculum.

Incoming Freshman

Incoming RMU freshmen can apply to the University Honors Program prior to the start of their first semester on campus.  The application form can be found here.  Review of applications begins March 1, with decisions being announced after April 1.  After the decision date, applications may continue to be reviewed until all positions are full.  Priority consideration is given to students with excellent high school records, including SAT scores of 1270 or higher (combined critical reading and math), cumulative GPAs of 3.5 or above and graduation at or near the top of their class.  

Current RMU Students

Current RMU first year students with at least a 3.5 RMU GPA and between 15 and 30 credits at the end of their first semester will be invited to apply to the honors program. The application form for continuing students can be found here. The deadline to submit an application is March 1.

Transfer Students

Incoming transfer students who have completed at least 30 credits with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are invited to apply to the honors program. In addition to the quality of the transfer application, consideration of the type of transfer institution (e.g. two-year, four-year, technical), consideration of previous participation in an Honors Program, amount and type of honors work completed and the feasibility of completing the RMU Honors curriculum will be taken into account.  Please email honors@rmu.edu for more information on how to apply as a transfer student.
