Edinboro University Honors College
Dr. Roger Solberg
High school seniors applying for admission to Edinboro University will automatically be offered a seat in the Honors College if they meet the following criteria:
Current Edinboro or transfer students applying for the Honors College must have earned a minimum college GPA of 3.40.
The Honors College Admissions and Scholarship application is provided below. You must complete this form if you fit one of the following descriptions:
All applications are reviewed by the Honors College Director and the students who serve on the Honors College office staff. In the decision-making process, your writing sample (see checklist below), extracurricular activities, and leadership positions are weighed very heavily.
There are two types of Honors College scholarships. One is an Academic Scholarship of up to $1,500 per year, renewable for four years as long as you maintain a minimum GPA of 3.50. The other is a Housing Waiver, equivalent to one-half the cost of a room in the Highlands or Towers residence halls (approximately $3,000); the Housing Waiver Scholarship is for the freshman year only and is non-renewable.
Only incoming high school graduates are eligible for Honors College scholarships. Current Edinboro students and transfer students are not eligible.
The application deadlines for Honors College admission and Honors scholarship consideration are November 1 Early Action, February 1 Priority Deadline, and April 1 Final Deadline. By April 1, most if not all of the Honors scholarships will have been awarded. However, exceptional late-arriving applications could result in an Honors scholarship offer if an earlier recipient chooses not to accept his or her award.
Please review the following checklist before starting your application:
I have applied, or intend to apply, to live on the Honors Living-Learning Floor in Highlands 1. (This is optional. You are not required to live on the Honors floor.)
I meet one or both of the minimum admission requirements: 1100 SAT/25 ACT; 3.50 GPA. (Students who fall slightly below these numbers can still apply.)
For my writing sample, I have included one of the following:
I have my resumé handy that contains my extracurricular activities, community service and leadership experience, which is required for the application. You will be asked to upload the file below. Note for Resumé Uploads: Please name your file "Full Name - Honors Application". If you need to resubmit a file, please add the version number to the end of the file name (ex. v2, v3, etc.). If you try to resubmit the file with the same name, it will not submit.
Note: By filling out this application, you are applying for both admission to the Honors College (unless you have already been automatically accepted) and Honors College scholarship consideration.
