We know that there are many outstanding, high achieving undergraduate students at UC who are not admitted to University Honors as incoming freshmen. We encourage interested students to apply through our transition process.
Please keep in mind that the transition process is very competitive and we are limited in the number of students that we can accept. As a result, there are also many outstanding, high achieving students that we are not able to admit through this process due to the number of applications received. In the 2014-15 process, we had 135 applications with 79 students admitted. (a 58% acceptance rate). We expect the same number of applications (if not more) in the 2015-16 process.
Applicants must have a cumulative university GPA of 3.2* or above and expect to have earned at least 24 semester hours of college credit by the end of spring semester 2016 in order to be considered for admission to University Honors. *Please be aware that the GPA of students who are admitted is typically much higher, above a 3.8.
