First-Year Student Application Form
Priority Deadline: March 1
This program looks carefully at each applicant and seeks individuals with a wide breadth of strengths.
An Honors Scholar is a curious and involved critical thinker dedicated to developing themselves
personally and professionally so that they may have a greater impact on the world. We offer
opportunities for you to engage in volunteerism, research and presentation/publication, study
abroad, fundraising, social and cultural engagement, and so much more. While our students are
bright and academically gifted, our program requirements go well beyond academics. As such, test
scores and GPA are not the only consideration when selecting new admits to the program.
Program Admission Guidelines
Generally, most applicants are able to demonstrate ONE of the following benchmarks:
• a composite score of 28 or higher on the ACT or 1300 on the SAT (M+V) OR
• graduation in the top 5% of high school class
However, ALL applicants who demonstrate considerable academic promise, drive, and commitment
will be considered for admission, and many applicants who meet or exceed these benchmarks may
not be admitted.
All students admitted to the Honors Scholar Program receive scholarship support from TWU, its
Foundation, and/or its partners. Thus, it is important to provide full and thoughtful responses in the
sections below since scholarship decisions will also be based in part on your application.
