Application Process

New Students

Incoming students are invited to apply to participate in the Honors Program based on ACT scores of 26 or higher (SAT combined scores of 1200 or higher), a high school grade point average of 3.5 or higher, and evidence of leadership and service during high school. Students should submit the Honors Application (pdf) or New Student Program Application (online form) and a brief writing sample. Students are also asked to submit a letter of recommendation from a high school administrator or teacher. See the Program application for more detailed information.

Students who do not meet one of the ACT/GPA requirements noted above are also encouraged to apply, especially if they demonstrate particular interest, motivation, and leadership potential.

Current Viterbo Students

Students that are currently enrolled at Viterbo and carry a GPA of 3.4 or higher may also apply for admission. These students should submit the following material to the Honors Office (Murphy Center 368): a letter of application, a writing sample of 3-4 pages, and two letters of support from Viterbo faculty pointing to both academic and service engagement.

Viterbo students not enrolled in the program may take Honors sections of General Education courses with the permission of the instructor and the Honors Director.
