Incoming freshmen with a combined math and critical reading SAT score of 1450 or above (or a 32 ACT composite), who have an "A" average in a challenging high school curriculum, and who are in the top 5 percent of their high school class (if applicable) are automatically eligible to enroll in University Honors College (UHC) courses. Additionally, some introductory courses in the sciences and math also may require a minimum score on a placement test; check with your advisor for specific information on this.
Freshmen students who do not meet SAT or GPA requirements may nonetheless be given permission to enroll in a UHC course by a UHC advisor or by the course instructor. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. If you want to take a UHC course, the best thing to do is ask your advisor.
Students who have been at the University for more than two terms qualify to take UHC courses if they have a 3.25 grade point average (GPA), a B+ average.
Detailed information about enrollment procedures for UHC courses is available here.
