University Honors Program Admissions
The University Honors Program offers generous scholarship support and is very competitive. Approximately 40 first-year college students and 20 college juniors enter the program each fall. The Honors Program receives anywhere from 200 to 250 applications each given year. Students who are not offered a seat in the University Honors Program are automatically considered for the University Scholars Program.
 
Incoming Freshman Deadline- January 15
​​​​​​​For admission in fall 2021 we are not requiring SAT or ACT scores.  Our application criteria include two options: test scores and class rank.  We will certainly accept test scores if they are available.  If a test score is unavailable we ask that students submit independent evidence of class rank (i.e. noted on a transcript or indicated in a letter from a school official).  This does not have to be a precise standing--rather, we need to know whether or not the student is in the top 10% of their graduating class.  If this is not possible the student should contact Dr. Lehfeldt at e.lehfeldt@csuohio.edu for further guidance.
 
Current College Sophomore Deadline- February 28
 
All applicants will receive an email confirming their application is completed.
 
University Scholars Program Admissions
The University Scholars Program does not offer scholarship support and welcomes a higher number of high achieving students who are looking to enrich their educational experience with honors coursework in their chosen major. 
 
Deadline for All Scholars Students- August 1
