As of Fall 2016, students may either be automatically admitted to, or apply to enter,
the Honors College. The path will be determined based on a student's high school GPA
and test scores:
- Students with a 4.0 weighted grade point average, and either a 1400 or higher on the SAT (scores from the pre-March 2016 test will be concorded to the new SAT scale for consideration), or 30 or higher on the ACT, will be automatically admitted into the Honors College once they are admitted to USF. Notification of acceptance is sent via mail at least one week after the USF Admissions letter, or after receipt of scores meeting these criteria.
- Students with a 3.8 weighted grade point average, and either a 1360-1390 on the SAT (scores from the pre-March 2016 test will be concorded to the new SAT scale for consideration), or 29 on the ACT, are invited to apply. Eligible students will receive an email with a link to the application, along with instructions and deadlines. Applications are reviewed by members of the Honors College staff or faculty, as well as by current Honors College students. All opinions are weighted equally.
