What do I need to do to be eligible for the program? What GPA and test scores should I be striving for?
To be eligible, students must have between a 1360 and 1390 SAT (or 29 to 31 composite ACT), along with at least a 3.75 unweighted GPA. Additionally, students must be admitted to the university by December 1. All of these criteria need to be met in order to be considered.
After you apply to ERAU, assuming you meet the baseline criteria for consideration, you will be invited to apply to the Honors Program. Once we have your application, it will be reviewed and a decision made. (We have two sets of application considerations - one in late fall/winter, the other in early spring). You must observe the published application deadline.
I am bringing in a lot of (transfer/AP/IB) credit. What should I sign up for during my first semester?
All students, regardless of transfer credit, MUST sign up for HON 150. Please refer to these two links to navigate the registration process as an Honors Program student (https://ernie.erau.edu/Departments/oua/Pages/Schedules.aspx and https://daytonabeach.erau.edu/admissions/applied-students/register/honors-student).
You do not have to take the Comp Eval; however, you might need to take the ALEKS assessment if you are trying to place into Calculus 1. Please note that the ALEKS assessment only places up to Calculus 1; if you are bringing in Calc AB and/or BC credit, you will not necessarily need to take the ALEKS exam. Please speak with your program advisor (listed in your Student Center) for more details and help with non-Honors course requirements.
As indicated in the links provided, AE, ME, and CIV students need to take the PSVT:R by June 20.
***We will speak with all students individually at the beginning of fall to go over your academic study plan within Honors. You will know exactly what your requirements are and how our Honors courses fit into your curriculum at that time.
I see that I have multiple advisors listed in my Student Center. Whom should I contact for questions?
Is it possible to NOT live in the Honors Program LLC, and instead room with a friend who hasn’t been admitted to Honors?
Can I realistically be an Honors Program student AND be committed to ROTC? Or be in Honors as well as an athlete?
If I don’t get accepted into the Honors Program as a first-year student, is there still an opportunity to join?
How much of my overall curriculum is Honors? And what are the criteria for successfully completing the Program?
