Students who have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.4 in their first year at Babson are invited to apply during the fall semester of their sophomore year. Transfer students who have completed at least one semester at Babson, and meet the minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.4 or higher at Babson, are also invited to apply. The fall semester application cycle is a student’s only opportunity to apply for admission to the Honors Program. Students receive an email invitation during the first week of the fall semester with further instructions on how to submit their application online.
The Honors Council faculty selects students based on a wide variety of factors including academic performance, scholarly passions, and writing ability. The Honors Council considers each applicant’s academic record, letter of application, co-curricular involvement, and interview with Council members in deciding who will be admitted to the program. Space is limited and the process is competitive.
