The Honors Program invites academically qualified, motivated students to apply. Normal qualifications for the Honors Program include a 3.5 high school grade point average, a score of 27 or higher on the ACT (or combined SAT score of 1260 or higher), one letter of recommendation from a high school teacher, and a written personal statement. All applications are evaluated holistically; there are no cutoff test scores or GPA requirements.
The letter of recommendation can be e-mailed from the teacher to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to: Honors Program, Northern Michigan University, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Marquette, MI 49855. In this highly competitive program, the university retains the right to exercise judgment as to the eligibility of the applicants.
Space is limited. We recommend application to the program be made during the fall semester of your senior year of high school. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted no later than May 1, 2020.
We appreciate your interest in the NMU Honors Program!
