Current Student Honors Application

There are a limited number of spots in the Honors College available for current Westminster College students (typically in their first year) who are not yet members of the Honors College. Admitted students take 4 Honors seminars and earn an Honors certificate while also satisfying all their remaining Westminster College general education requirements (WCore). Applicants must have successfully completed at least 2 WCore courses before starting classes in the Honors College.

How to Apply

Complete the Honors College application. You will need to upload the following in your application:

  • A 1–3 page, typed honors essay (explains why you are a suitable candidate for the Honors College and how its classes and co-curricular programs will help you achieve your academic goals)
  • A graded, college-level essay

Additionally, you will need to give a letter of recommendation form to the faculty member you would like to have complete it. Email Olivia Morfas to receive the form or to ask questions about the form.

You will also need to schedule a visit to an Honors seminar and a conversation with the Honors dean. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
