Admission After Freshman Year

Current U of M-Twin Cities and transfer students are accepted into the University Honors Program every fall semester on a space-available basis.

Eligibility Requirements

To be considered for admission to the honors program, you must have:

  • a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5
  • a history of strong performance in major and prerequisite coursework
  • at least 60 graded (A–F) credits left to complete at the U of M-Twin Cities after admission

Please note that admission is highly competitive. The mean GPA for non-freshman students admitted to the program is typically 3.85. Admitted students have also demonstrated a strong interest in research, scholarship, or artistic activity.

Admissions Information

Fall 2014 admission has closed, and the application for fall 2015 will be posted here in mid-October 2014. As the fall semester progresses, we will schedule information sessions for students interested in learning more about post-freshman admission to the University Honors Program.
