March 17, 2014 11:30AM

Pittsburg State University has announced the selection of 36 students for the 2014 Fall Honors College freshman class.

Craig Fuchs, director of the Honors College, said he is excited about the quality of the incoming freshman class.

“These are some exceptional young men and women,” Fuchs said. “They have demonstrated not only high academic success, but also strong character. We are pleased that they are now part of the Pittsburg State University family.”

The PSU Honors College was established to attract and retain high-achieving students to the campus and to provide them with an educationally enriched university experience. Application to the Honors College is open to incoming freshmen with an ACT composite score of 28 or higher or an SAT composite score of 1240 or higher. In addition, they must have completed a pre-college curriculum and have a high-school GPA of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

Students selected for the Honors College are eligible to receive scholarship assistance ranging from $2,200 a year for Crimson and Gold members to $9,500 a year for the Presidential Award. Presidential and University Award recipients are also eligible to receive a one-time, $2,000 study-abroad stipend.
