Prospective Students

Apply to Honors as an Incoming Student

Prospective students apply to the University Honors Program at the same time they apply for admission to the George Washington University (GW). You will indicate your interest by applying via the GW Supplement to the Common Application under Special Programs. Your Honors Program application will be considered after the university has made a decision on your general application. The Honors Program decision will not affect the university's decision.

The Honors Program application requires a set of specific essay questions in addition to the essays required for the general application to GW. You will find these essays in the GW Supplement. 

There are no specific minimums or expectations with regard to standardized test scores or high school GPAs.

For more information about the GW application process, visit the Undergraduate Admissions website.
