Students accepted to Villanova University are invited to the Honors Program at the time of their acceptance to the University. Prospective students interested in the Honors Program are not required to fill out a separate application for Honors, but are strongly encouraged to apply to Villanova by November 1. Accepted students who have not been initially invited to the Honors Program may apply by completing the Incoming Student Application, posted if spaces are still available in the Program, and sending it via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 1. These students will be notified of admission into the Program by July 1. Typically, incoming Honors students have an average SAT score of 1420 or ACT score of 32 and 3.9 high school GPA. Given the competitive applicant pool and selectivity of the program, sometimes we cannot accommodate all exceptional students.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Our incoming freshman Honors class has filled. We will not be accepting summer applications for admission to Honors. Interested students are welcome to apply to Honors at the end of their first semester, following the application instructions for current students. As a reminder, given the competitive applicant pool and selectivity of the program, sometimes we cannot accommodate all exceptional students.
For prospective students interested in scholarships, please consult University Admission's scholarship information. Many students accepted to the Honors Program are also selected as Villanova scholars. The deadline to be considered for this scholarship is November 1. Students may also be interested in the Presidential Scholarship, a scholarship that includes full-tuition, room and board, meal plan, and textbook costs. Students must be nominated for this scholarship by their high school or recognized community organization. The nomination deadline is December 1. More detailed information on these, and other scholarship opportunities, can be found through the CURF links (on the right sidebar) or on the University Admission page.
