Applying for admission to the Honors College is an important step to success at MU. The Honors College welcomes applications from all students who meet our qualifications or who feel that they have an academic record or traits that will make them successful Honors students at MU.
Applications for the class of 2021 are now open.
The preferred application deadline for Fall admission (for most students) is March 1st—a deadline which considers residence hall (ROAR) time frames and preparation for Summer Welcome.
Admission to the Honors College is selective. When considering you for admission, we look at:
- your ACT and/or SAT scores (* SAT scores (Critical Reading and Math only) are converted to ACT scores by the MU Admissions Office.)
- your class rank (if your school ranks its students)
- and your Core GPA or Enhanced Core GPA, whichever is higher, calculated by MU Admissions from your official U.S. high school transcript.
