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.
