Admissions

Honors students gather at the duck pond

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 review accepted students, and those identified as potential candidates are invited to interview for the program. There is a fall and a spring interview date and invitations are sent to applicants that meet the admission criteria. 

“My advice to first-year students would be to stay true to your heart. You’re not here solely because of your grades, perceived successes, or failures. You’re here because someone saw the greatness in you. Don’t let a bad day, bad week, bad test, or bad interaction stop you from growing and learning. You’re stronger than any circumstance.” -Kayla Claiborne ’21
