Our application consists of three components: your academic record, a resume, and an essay. For current Boise State students or incoming transfer students, we recommend an unweighted cumulative 3.5 college GPA or higher*. Your resume and essay serve as opportunities for you to highlight your experience in engaging with the world around you.
*Note: Meeting or exceeding our academic performance recommendations does not automatically guarantee admission or a scholarship from the Honors College. Failure to meet them does not automatically disqualify you for admission.
Our application cycle runs from January 1 – May 1 for admission the following fall semester. You will be notified of our admission decision according to the schedule below:
- Apply by February 15 to receive a decision on or before March 15
- Apply by May 1 to receive a decision on or before May 15
If you apply before February 15 and are placed on our waitlist, you will receive your final Honors admission decision no later than March 31.
