The Fall 2021 Honors Program application will open on October 1st, 2020.
Students who have already been admitted to Illinois State University, have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or greater, and evidence of extracurricular/community involvement are encouraged to submit an application for admission to the Honors Program.
Admission to the Honors Program is competitive and space is limited. The application consists of two parts: Prospective students report their personal information (which will be used to match to their university admission application) and compose written responses to the provided prompts. Each student's application is carefully reviewed, with academic credentials and the quality of written responses having equal importance.
Applications received by February 1, 2021 will be eligible for first-year scholarships awarded by the Honors Program and will receive priority consideration for admission into the Honors Program. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and prospective students can expect to receive a written reply within 3-4 weeks. The final application deadline is April 1st, 2021.
All questions related to Honors Program admission should be directed to HonorsProgram@IllinoisState.edu.
