Admission Forms Based on Year of Application

Incoming First-years

As a first-year undergraduate applicant to UConn Storrs, UConn Stamford, and/or UConn Hartford, you will automatically be considered for admission to the Honors Program. There is no separate Honors application. Honors Program admission is based on a holistic review of your UConn application. The following may be considered:

  • Academic performance including:
    • High school class rank (if available)
    • High school grade point average
    • Rigor of high school academic program
  • SAT/ACT scores (optional*)
  • Leadership in co-/extra-curricular activities
  • Diversity in geography, interests, and talents

*Test optional: We understand that one test may not accurately describe your potential as a UConn Honors student. First-year applicants to UConn (through Fall 2026) will have the choice on whether or not they submit standardized test results. Admission consideration will not be affected if a standardized test score is not provided.

More information about Honors first-year admissions can be found here.
