Who is eligible to be an Honors Program student?
Recipients of the College’s Trustee scholarships and Valedictorian scholarships are automatically invited to participate in the Roger G. and Gaile Davenport Taylor Honors Program. Incoming students with a combined score of at least 1100 on the Critical Reading and Mathematics sections of the SAT (or equivalent ACT scores) and a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher will be invited to submit a written application and two letters of recommendation to the Honors Program Director. In each first year class, a limited number of students are accepted into the Program and the review process is selective and competitive. Other recommended students with outstanding academic records during their first year at Wesleyan and transfer students may be invited to apply to the Program. Honors students must maintain an overall GPA of at least a 3.0 in order to remain in the Program.
