Given the competitive nature of the application process, we strongly urge all interested students to apply to the Weber Honors College by 11:59pm on January 15. Applicants will be notified of their Weber Honors College admission decision in mid-February.
Each year, the Weber Honors College awards approximately 10 scholarships to incoming honors freshmen.

Students should consider applying to the Weber Honors College if they are stimulated by ideas, skeptical of definitive answers or of easy solutions, and pursuing an education, not just a degree.

AP, IB, or Concurrent Enrollment Credit
Many of our incoming Honors freshmen arrive with college credit earned through AP tests, concurrent enrollment credit, or an IB experience. These credits may count toward some of your General Education requirements; however, these credits cannot be used toward completion of the Weber Honors College requirements.
Honors classes are not interchangeable with any coursework done in high school; therefore,
AP, IB, or community college credits do not waive any of the Honors requirements.
