Weber Honors College Application Deadlines
**Students do NOT need to be admitted into San Diego State University before applying to the Weber Honors College. Students who have applied to SDSU can apply to the Weber Honors College prior to receiving their admission decision from the University.**
Fall 2021 Priority Consideration Deadline: February 15, 2021*
*On December 1, the California State University (CSU) application deadline for fall 2021 admission was extended from December 4 to December 15. The Weber Honors College has decided to extend their priority application deadline as well, from February 1 to February 15.
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 February 15. Applicants will be notified of their Weber Honors College admission decision in early March.
Each year, the Weber Honors College awards approximately 10 scholarships to incoming Honors College freshmen. Weber Honors College scholarships are highly competitive given the outstanding caliber of our applicants. Students who are admitted into SDSU and into the Weber Honors College can apply for Honors Scholarships via the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships (OFAS) once they have submitted their intent to enroll to SDSU and the Weber Honors College, and activated their SDSU ID. Students who do not submit their intent to enroll to both SDSU and to the Weber Honors College (these are two separate processes) will not be able to apply for honors scholarships. The deadline to submit both the SDSU and the Weber Honors College intents is May 1, 2021. The scholarship application will open March 1, 2021.
Fall 2021 Final Deadline (FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND CURRENT SDSU STUDENTS):
March 30, 2021
After February 15, applications will be accepted and evaluated on a space-available basis until 11:59pm on March 30. A limited number of applications received after February 15 will be admitted into the Weber Honors College. Applicants will be notified of their Weber Honors College admission decision in mid-April.
Fall 2021 Final Deadline (FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS CURRENTLY ATTENDING ANOTHER COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY):
July 2, 2021
After March 30, transfer student applications will be accepted and evaluated on a space-available basis until 11:59pm on July 2. A limited number of transfer student applications received after March 30 will be admitted into the Weber Honors College. Applicants will be notified of their Weber Honors College admission decision in mid-July.
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. If accepted, Weber Honors College students will find themselves in an intellectual peer group with a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives.
Honors Admission Requirements

High school seniors (incoming college freshmen) from the U.S. or overseas will be required to meet the following criteria in order to apply:
- A weighted grade point average of 3.70 or above
Currently enrolled SDSU Applicants
Current SDSU students must have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average in order to apply.
Students from the U.S. or overseas applying from a community college or another university must have at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average in order to apply. Students need at least two years at SDSU in order to complete the Weber Honors College requirements. Transfer students who are currently in an honors program at a community college may also want to visit the Honors Transfer Council of California (HTCC) Site
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.
