Honors Application for Fall 2023

    Thank you for your interest in applying to the John E. Sallstrom Honors College at Georgia College.

    Applications for the John E. Sallstrom Honors College are reviewed by an Honors Selection Committee. The committee considers academic achievement and potential, writing skills, evidence of intellectual curiosity, record of leadership and service, and special talents (e.g. artistic).

    For domestic applicants, the preferred minimum high school academic core GPA is 3.50 as calculated by the Office of Admissions. The Honors College is test optional for students applying for fall 2023 admission. For Honors applicants submitting test scores, the preferred standardized test minimum is 1260 SAT total (Evidence Based Reading and Writing + Math) or 27 ACT Composite. In recent years, the average GPA of incoming first-year students has been about 3.80 and the average SAT score has been about 1290.

    For international applicants, the preferred minimum high school academic core GPA is 3.50 as calculated by the Office of Admissions. The preferred minimum TOEFL score is 88.

    The Honors Selection Committee reviews all applications holistically. Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis, starting in October and ending in April.  A timeline of our decision cycle can be found at this link.

    NOTE: (1) President’s Scholarship Competition attendees and students applying during the Early Action cycle with a high school academic core GPA of 4.0 (as calculated by the Office of Admissions) and 1330+ SAT or 30+ ACT will be considered for the Honors College without having to submit a separate Honors application. (2) Students admitted to the Honors College must submit their Georgia College confirmation deposit to secure their spot in the Honors College. For fall 2023, 130 slots are available. Students who deposit after all 130 slots have been filled will be placed on a waitlist.
