College of Liberal Arts
Dean's Scholars Program
This program offers a select group of first-year students the opportunity to live in a learning community with other high achievers, to meet faculty and administrators at special events, to take a one-credit seminar on undergraduate research and success with the director of honors, and to pursue research with a member of the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) faculty. All incoming students who are awarded either a Trustees Scholarship or Presidential Scholarship or who qualify for the CLA Honors Program are invited to apply. To qualify for the honors program, first-year students need to have a combined SAT score of 1800 or higher, an ACT score of 26 or higher or be in the upper 10 percent of their graduating class.
