Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2013-2014
Up one level
Walsh University’s honors program has two ways of being admitted: General Honors, for those beginning the program in their freshman year, and Track II Honors, for those entering the program as sophomores.
General Honors: Each year the incoming Freshman Honors Class is selected from a qualified pool of high school seniors who have completed the Scholarship Day Application and participated in Scholarship Day. During Scholarship Day, applicants interview with faculty and interact with Walsh’s current Presidential and Honors Scholars. Honors Program Scholarships are awarded based on the recommendations of the faculty after careful review of each student’s Scholarship Day application material, high school academic record, achievement on national standardized tests, and performance during the interview process. In general, Honors Scholarship applicants should meet or exceed the following criteria:
Track II Honors: An Honors experience for those students seeking the challenge of Honors courses only after their freshman year and before they start their first sophomore semester. To apply for Track II Honors Program a student must complete an application form, submit a writing sample, and have an interview with the Director of the Honors Program in the Spring semester of their freshman year. Students should have a minimum grade point average of 3.3 in university courses when applying. Students interested in Track II Honors should contact the Director of the Honors Program in the second semester of their freshman year to initiate the application process. Students selected into Track II Honors receive the same scholarship support as students in the General Honors Program.
