Admission Guidelines

Incoming First-Year Students

The program is open to qualified, motivated students of all majors.  Students seeking admission to Bellarmine who are interested in Honors complete a separate application that is then reviewed by the Honors Program Director and members of the Honors Council.  Each application is evaluated holistically, with special consideration given to applicants who not only have strong test scores and GPAs (typically a 28+ on the ACT and a 3.5+ GPA), but also provide compelling evidence of genuine intellectual curiosity. Once a student completes an application, the Honors Council reviews files of qualified students and issues acceptances in the spring before matriculation.

Transfer and Continuing Students

Transfer students and students who demonstrate academic excellence and leadership during their first year at Bellarmine are encouraged to apply.
