FRESHMEN: If you have been accepted to Rowan and received a letter from the Bantivoglio Honors Concentration encouraging you to apply to Honors, here are the next steps. You are eligible to apply if you have SAT scores of at least 1770 or ACT 26; we must receive your application and recommendation form by 3/3/14. Need information? Honors@rowan.edu
TRANSFER STUDENTS: Transfer students in Honors programs at their current institutions should contact Dr. Thompson directly at thompsonc@rowan.edu for information.
  1. Complete the appropriate application form.

  3. Freshmen: Submit electronically as an email attachment to HonorsApplications@rowan.edu by March 3, 2014; this email address will become active at the beginning of February.
  4. Freshman Applicants: Your recommender should email this form to HonorsApplications@rowan.edu beginning in February. Recommenders should use this form. Recommenders should be academic faculty at your school.

APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING THE REQUIRED LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FROM A CURRENT ROWAN UNIV. PROFESSOR, WERE DUE 11/18. APPLICANTS ARE NOTIFIED THE FIRST WEEK IN DECEMBER.

Fall 2014 Application Review and Acceptance Timeline

Each candidate is evaluated individually. Selection of freshmen is based upon a review of academic performance (GPA, class rank, SAT/ACT scores), interest in participating in an interdisciplinary Honors learning community, extracurricular activities, and recommendation on the Bantivoglio recommendation form.

Interviews may be requested by the candidate and/or by the Honors Concentration Coordinator as a condition for admission. 

Applications and recommendation forms should be received by March 3, 2014.  All applications with letters of recommendation received by March 3, 2014, will be evaluated and responded to by the end of March. Please note that we are a competitive program and accepted fewer than 40% of our applicants last year.

After acceptance, course interest forms will be sent by email. Students will be enrolled in courses in the order that their interest forms are received.

Note to Families

In the spirit of fostering reponsibility and independence in our future Honors students, we believe that contact should come directly from students.

Accepted Students Reception

The Rowan University Honors Accepted Students reception is scheduled for mid-April 2014.

Correspondence

All Honors correspondence is conducted by email. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us at Honors@rowan.edu.
