Honors students may enroll either for fall or spring term. Internal application and subsequent Principia application deadlines (if your internal application is selected) are
- Fall Semester Study: Feb. 26 (internal application due) and May 1 (Principia application due)
- Spring Semester Study: Sept. 1 (internal application due) and Oct. 20 (Principia application due)
Principia students pay Westminster tution and pay Glasgow for housing, which runs roughly commensurate with standard college housing costs. (NOTE: housing is referred to as "accommodation" in the UK. Do *not* list Wolfson Halll as one of your housing choices, as it is a 45 min. walk from campus.) Federal financial aid can be used to assist with these fees as well as offset other study abroad related expenses. All Westminster Honors students in good standing who have completed at least three of the seven core Honors seminars prior to departure are eligible to apply, as long as their study abroad semester is not their final term of college. The Consortium also requires students to have a 3.5 GPA at the time of the study abroad experience. (NOTE: While Tuition Exchange and Tuition Remission students in Honors are eligible to apply to Principia, if accepted they must pay the full cost of the experience themselves.)
