University Campus Honors Program Application

The Honors Program seeks to admit students who demonstrate academic accomplishment and commitment to Saint Leo's core values of excellence, community, respect, personal development, responsible stewardship and integrity. Admission is selective, and neither acceptance by the University nor a grant or scholarship is a guarantee of admission to the Honors Program. 

Minimum Qualifications

Incoming Freshman:
The minimum requirements for admission to the Honors Program are a Unweighted high school GPA of 3.5, and an SAT score of 1270 or the ACT equivalent of 26. Students who have the equivalent GPA but do not meet the SAT or ACT requirement may petition to apply to the Honors Program by completing this form.

Incoming Transfer Students:
Students who transfer from another National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC)-recognized Honors program with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 are automatically eligible for admission. Junior transfer students holding an AA or AS degree who have a minimum GPA of 3.5 may petition to join the Honors Program for the final two years. The two-year Honors curriculum for qualified junior transfers consists of the following courses: HON 360, HON 361, HON 498 and HON 499.
