Admission to the Honors Program

Application: Once you have been accepted into the University of North Florida, you may apply to the Honors Program. We will be accepting applications for Fall 2016 in the Fall of 2015.

We are looking for well-rounded students who are able to balance high engagement and academic success and so we use multiple factors for admission decisions: GPA, test scores, essay responses, and evidence of community involvement. You can add any other material to your Honors application (resume, letter of recommendation, etc.). The average profile of the 2015 incoming class is 4.25 GPA/1224 SAT/28 ACT. However, we encourage students of all backgrounds to apply.

  • If you choose to submit a resume, it should include your main activities and honors in high school (prizes, scholarships, professional or academic offices held, athletic pursuits, extracurricular interests and activities). Please submit resumes to after you complete the application. 
  • If you choose to submit a professional letter of recommendation, it should be a scanned pdf file on an official letterhead. This letter should be from a teacher, guidance counselor, principal, coach, employer, or other non-personal contacts. Also, the contact information of the person writing the recommendation should be included as well. Please submit letters to after you complete the application.
