Each year, Roanoke invites about 45 incoming freshmen and first-term sophomores, including international students, to join the Honors Program. Having demonstrated excellent academic performance, extracurricular interests and leadership abilities, these talented students engage in a rich and rewarding experience involving unique curricular and co-curricular programs.
Steps in applying (for incoming freshmen)
1. Complete the admissions application by the appropriate date or earlier.
2. Complete the Honors application at the earliest date possible, preferably by the end of January.
3. When you receive your invitation to join the program, secure your place in the program by making a deposit to Roanoke and accepting the invitation. Invitations are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualified students.
(Please note that Honors Program admission supersedes any application to the Roanoke College Fellows Program, as Honors is the more comprehensive of the programs.)
