Calling all freshmen! Do you meet any of the criteria below?

  • Top ten percent of high school graduating class
  • ACT composite score of 27
  • SAT score of 1270 (calculated as Math + Verbal scores)
  • Completed the AP Capstone Program

If the answer is yes, you’re eligible to apply to the Honors College at Texas State! If you’re on the fence about Honors College or would like to know more, this blog will help you understand how the Honors College operates and how it can benefit you while you’re at Texas State.

Deadlines

First of all, the Honors College accepts applications on a rolling basis. But there is some important information you should know. Incoming freshmen need to be admitted to the Honors College before 5 p.m. on Sept. 1 or Feb. 1 to ensure the benefit of priority registration. So make sure you get your application in on time!

Courses

The Honors College offers one-of-a-kind courses that are diverse. Courses could have 20 students rather than regular courses which could be in a teaching theatre over 200 students. Students will be able to participate more in a smaller class than a larger class where it can feel daunting to speak up. As an Honors College student you’ll be learning from award-winning and student-centered faculty members who will provide one-on-one interactions in their courses. Here’s a list of honor courses that will be available to students.

Involvement

The Honors college strongly encourages its students to get involved in and out of the classroom. Students can get involved with student organizations, volunteer opportunities, leadership roles, and events affiliated with the Honors College. One of the best ways to meet other students in the Honors College is to visit Honors Hammock Haven. It’s located on the second floor of Lampasas, between Lampasas and ASBN. You can bring your own hammock or hang out in one of the provided hammocks!

Priority Registration

Priority registration means that you get to register for classes on the first day registration opens! You get to create the best class schedule for you and classes are rarely full. Let me tell you, freshmen who aren’t in Honors College don’t register until the very last day. That leaves freshmen registering for 8 a.m. classes or having a schedule that isn’t ideal.

Contact Information

If you have any more questions or need more information about something contact the Honors College at (512)-245-2266 or e-mail at honors@txstate.edu.
