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 2020 Priority Consideration Deadline: January 15, 2020
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 late February.
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. To apply for these scholarships you must first complete your application to the Weber Honors College by 11:59pm on the January 15 deadline. Only the students who applied by January 15th and are admitted to the Weber Honors College will receive an email in April 2020 with a link to the Weber Honors College Scholarship Application.
Fall 2020 Final Deadline (FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND CURRENT SDSU STUDENTS):
March 30, 2020
After January 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 January 15 will be admitted into the Weber Honors College. Applicants will be notified of their Weber Honors College admission decision in mid-April.
Fall 2020 Final Deadline (FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS CURRENTLY ATTENDING ANOTHER COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY):
June 1, 2020
After March 30, transfer student applications will be accepted and evaluated on a space-available basis until 11:59pm on June 1. 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-June.
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 Applicants
High school seniors (incoming college freshmen) from the U.S. or overseas will be required to meet one of the following three eligibility criteria in order to apply:
- A weighted grade point average of 3.70 or above, or
- A composite score of 28 or above on the ACT, or
- A score of 1270 or above on the SAT (Evidence-Based Reading & Writing + Math)
Currently enrolled SDSU Applicants

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.
