Admissions

Zooming with our alum Colin ChristensenWe are looking for students who are ready to challenge, engage, and empower themselves and others through leadership, service, and high academic performance. 

Because of the current challenges facing high school seniors who plan to enter college in the fall of 2021, Admissions looks a little different. While we might have to Zoom a little more than we would like, we will make applying to the Honors Program as personal as possible.

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
