Honors Program Admission Policy

Your path to enrichment in a constantly changing world.

Students who qualify for the Honors Program will be invited to apply for admission to the program. Our faculty seeks to admit approximately 20-30 promising students to the Honors Program each year.

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)
  • High school grade point average of 3.5 or above
  • For international students: a TOEFL score of 550 or higher
  • Academic achievements
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Community service

Transfer Students:
Transfer students may 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.
