Interview for a limited spot in our distinguished Honors Program!
We’ve got an informative day planned for you and your family with information sessions about the admissions process, financial aid and academics. Then join a current E&H student ambassador on a campus tour and learn about our buildings and classrooms, study abroad, and living and learning on campus. Additionally, optional student-ran sessions during the day will take a look at study abroad to internships, and research opportunities to give candidates comprehensive insight into Emory & Henry College and the Honors Program. Each candidate participates in a 30-minute interview panel and a 50-minute seminar session with fellow applicants. If you have any questions regarding the Honors Program please contact Dr. Scott Boltwood.
We are looking for students who are ready to challenge, engage, and empower themselves and others through leadership, service, and high academic performance.
The Emory & Henry College Honors Program admission process is based on a holistic review of each student’s application. First, you must complete your application to Emory & Henry College. We will review accepted students, and those identified as potential candidates will then be invited to interview for the program on February 3, 2018.
Due to the limited number of spots in the Honors Program, the admissions process is very competitive and selective. Please complete your application as soon as possible.
