Admission Requirements


Students should consider applying to the Honors Program if they are stimulated by ideas, tend to be skeptical of definitive answers or easy solutions, and are pursuing an education, not just a degree. If accepted, Honors Program students will find themselves in an intellectual peer group with a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives.

  • A score of 1200 or above on the SAT (math & verbal), or
  • A composite score of 28 or above on the ACT



Currently enrolled SDSU Applicants

Transfer Applicants

Students applying from a community college or another university must have at least a 3.50 cumulative grade point average.
