Admissions

Zooming with our alum Colin Christensen

Although there are still challenges facing high school seniors who plan to enter college in the fall of 2024, we will make applying to the Honors Program as personal as possible.

The Emory & Henry Honors Program is active in the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), the National Society for Minorities in Honors (NSFMIH), the Phi Eta Sigma national Honor society (P.E.S.), and the Virginias Collegiate Honors Council for West Virginia and Virginia (VCHC).

Our Honors students have too many benefits and opportunities to briefly list here, so please review the “About” and “Benefits” pages.

The Honors Program admission process is based on a holistic review of each student’s application. First, complete your application to the College. Once you receive the email letting you know that you have been accepted to Emory & Henry, you can begin working on your application to the Honors Program. 

If you have already been accepted to the college (Congratulations!), the next step is to apply to the Honors Program. Once you complete this form, we’ll contact you.

Honors Program Scholarship Application

The Honors Program hosts scholarship days when you can interview for the program and meet our current scholars. You can interview for a place in The Honors Program, on  February 24, 2024, as part of Emory & Henry’s Blue & Gold Admissions Day. Honors will meet applicants during the afternoon, from about 12:00 to 3:30. Contact us for details!

Also we are always ready to meet you and conduct our interviews if you are coming to campus at other times, especially if you’re traveling from a great distance to audition, make contact with a coach, try out for a team, or other reasons as well. We’ll do our best to work with you! 

“Honors is the family where I found my place on campus and my voice in the classroom. It is the place where I have been able to grow as a leader and foster my connections with both students and faculty, on and off campus. The Honors Program stands as the main tenant of my life and college experience.”

—Layne Hubble, Class of 2020
