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 2022, we will make applying to the Honors Program as personal as possible.

The Emory & Henry College Honors Program is active in the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), the National Society for Minorities in Honors (NSFMIH), and the Virginia Collegiate Honors Council (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 Emory & Henry College. Once you receive the email letting you know that you have been accepted to E&H you can begin working on your application to the Honors Program. 

If you have already been accepted (Congratulations!), the next step is to use this “Request Info” link to tell us about you. (You can find the link on the top, left of this page’s menu, under “Admissions.”) Once you complete this form, we’ll contact you with more information.

Interviews will start on a rolling basis in early February, for those who come to campus to visit or who schedule a zoom interview. 

“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
