Current Honors Student Application

There are a limited number of spots in the Honors College available for current Westminster students (typically in their first year) who are not yet members of the Honors College. Admitted students take 4 Honors seminars and earn an Honors certificate while also satisfying all their remaining Westminster general education requirements (WCore). Applicants must have successfully completed at least 2 WCore courses before starting classes in the Honors College.

How to Apply

Complete the application below and upload your typed honors essay, upload a graded, college-level essay, and have a faculty member complete your letter of recommendation form. You will also need to schedule a visit to an Honors seminar and a conversation with the Honors dean. Incomplete applications will not be considered.


Please write a short, typed essay (1–3 pages) that explains why you are a suitable candidate for the Honors College and how its classes and co-curricular programs will help you achieve your academic goals. You must have a completed essay before starting the application.

Once you are ready to apply to the Honors College at Westminster as an internal lateral-entry student, please continue on to the application.
