Honors Program Admissions Policy and Application Procedure

The Honors Program faculty seeks to admit approximately 20-30 promising students to the Honors Program each year. Their invitation to join the Honors Program will be based upon the following criteria: 

  • SAT combined score of 1500 or above (or equivalent ACT combined score); for international students, a TOEFL score of 550 or higher
  • High School Grade Point Average of 3.50 or above
  • Demonstrated evidence of past academic achievement, and a commitment to extra-curricular activities and community service.

Transfer Students and Late Applicants 

Transfer students and late applicants may also apply for the program. Admission will be based on an interview with two Honors Program faculty members, a 3.5 college grade point average, and a commitment to extra-curricular activities. Students will be required to make up the one- credit courses they missed, unless they participated in an honors program at their previous school. In the latter case, the student would submit to the Bay Path Honors Program faculty evidence of their honors work at their previous institution. Upon approval, the missed requirements will be waived for students transferring from another honors program.
