Admission to the Honors Program is through an application process. Click here to complete the application. Once a student completes an application the Honors Counsel reviews files of qualified students and issues acceptance in the spring before matriculation. An ACT of 28+ or SAT of 1250, and a strong GPA serve as a baseline. Looking beyond such numbers, however, the program seeks individual who demonstrate a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, and a desire to pursue advanced education. Students typically join the program upon matriculation at Bellarmine; however, students may be invited to by the director, or may apply to the director for admission to the program, through the sophomore year.
