You must have been admitted to Liberty University in order to be accepted into the Honors Program.
Be sure to fully complete the Honors Application. Attach additional pages if needed.
Required scores must be documented in the application packet either on the high school transcript or results from the College Board (a screen shot or print-out is acceptable). Qualifying scores must be available by April 1 (1270 SAT is a combined critical reading and math score only, not the writing sample).
*Transfer or current Liberty University students do not need to include SAT/ACT scores.
Transcripts MUST be submitted as follows:
*Although the Liberty University's Registrar may have transcripts, they are unavailable to the Honors Program office and must be submitted directly to the office as a part of the application packet.
Include an expository essay of four to five typed pages on the topic “What I Hope to Gain from an Honors Program Education at Liberty University.” This should be doubled spaced with one inch margins and 12-point Times New Roman font.
Submit three letters of recommendation written on school/business letterhead with a signature and placed in sealed envelopes with sender’s signature across the flap. Letters of recommendation should address areas such as your intelligence, your critical thinking, your creative problem solving abilities, and their estimation of your potential to succeed academically in an Honors Program curriculum.
When applying, please send all the materials—application, transcripts, essay and three letters of recommendation- in one envelope to the Honors Program office. Applications must be postmarked by April 1.
