The priority deadline for applying to the Honors Program is February 15.  The general review of applications will begin March 15 and continue until all positions are filled.  Preference 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 are invited to apply to the University Honors Program. The application form for continuing students can be found here. The deadline to submit an application is February 15.

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.
