Each freshman applicant to the University of Minnesota is carefully reviewed for admission to the University Honors Program. Invitations to join are offered to the most competitive applicants from each freshman-admitting college.
No, there is no separate honors application for prospective freshmen!
Competitiveness for honors admission is determined by a holistic review, taking all elements of an applicant’s University application into consideration, with emphasis placed upon rigor of high school curriculum, grade point average, high school rank, and ACT or SAT test scores.
Applicants selected for the University Honors Program will be notified by the end of February of their senior year if they apply by the November 1 priority deadline, and on a space-available basis if they apply by the December 15 deadline.
Don't worry, you can apply after freshman year.
Once you've been invited:
