Honors College accepting applications for transfer students
August 18, 2014
The Purdue University Honors College is accepting applications from students who have attended the University for at least one semester and wish to join the college beginning this spring semester. The deadline is Sept. 5.
The application is here. Faculty members are encouraged to share information about the Honors College with high-achieving students.
Applicants must have at least four semesters of study remaining at Purdue. Students accepted into the Honors College also must agree to complete the college's curriculum. Honors College students are dual-enrolled with their disciplinary college.
Transfer students are considered upper-division, so they are not required to live in Honors College housing. More information about the requirements to join the Honors College is available at the application link.
The benefits of transferring to the Honors College are vast, says Rhonda Phillips, the Honors College's dean.
"Students who complete the college's curriculum earn an honors-designated degree. The Honors College offers students unique research opportunities, specialized coursework, leadership development opportunities and a supportive community of scholars," Phillips says.
She also invites students to try out an honors course or seminar because they are open to all Purdue students, even those not enrolled in the Honors College. Students not enrolled in the Honors College may take honors courses provided space is available and the student has a minimum GPA of 3.0.
