招生 Requirements for 荣誉
The typical honors student has a combined SAT score of over 1200 (verbal and math), is in the top 10% of their class, and has a GPA above 3.5对4.0规模. Having taken honors classes in high school, including AP or IB classes, may improve your chances of being accepted.
Due to the competitive nature of our 荣誉项目, early application is recommended. If you are not accepted in your first semester, you may reapply the following spring.
The honors essay is the most vital piece of your application. The ability to write clearly and effectively is a characteristic of successful honors students and will weigh heavily in your favor.
维护 & Graduate with 荣誉
荣誉 students are required to take twenty-four (24) semester hours of honors courses in order to graduate. These hours include a senior seminar and honors project.
As a student in the 荣誉项目, you will be required to maintain a 3.4累积绩点.
If for any reason you drop below this standard you'll be placed on one semester of academic probation. If you cannot met the requirements after your probationary semester, you will be effectively withdrawn from the 荣誉项目.
Students who have met and maintained the honors standard and required courses are eligible for graduation with honors.
- I am a current student or transfer candidate. How do I apply for honors?
The 荣誉项目 welcomes applications from current college students. Eligible candidates should have a current 3.4累积绩点, complete a full application, and request two brief faculty recommendations that can be delivered by email. The evidence of college performance and faculty endorsements are prioritized over any previous high school record.
- Can I transfer any previous honors courses to 哥伦比亚大学 from another honors program?
Students who transfer from another college honors program may receive selected credit for previous honors work.
- Do high school AP/IB/Dual-Credit courses earn college honors credits?
Assuming required scores, credits earned from Advanced Placement, 国际 Baccalaureate, or dual-credit courses are counted by 哥伦比亚大学 toward graduation, but they do not earn honors hours toward completion of the program.
