Honors College New Freshman Application
This application is for new freshmen seeking admission to the Honors College at Kent State University.
Honors College admission is by invitation. Incoming freshman students with a 27 ACT composite or 1210 SAT Combined Reading & Math score and a 3.60 minimum cumulative GPA from high school are invited to apply for membership.
The Honors College application is supplemental to your Kent State application and requires two short essays for admission. The required essays are a critical component of the admission decision. We seek students who demonstrate the motivation to participate in small challenging courses, exhibit good writing skills, and show potential for superior intellectual and creative activities.
