The Wilkes Honors College accepts applications from students wishing to transfer from 2-year or 4-year institutions. Admission decisions will be based on an applicant's qualifications and will be made on a space-available basis. An interview may be required. As a liberal arts and sciences college, the Honors College offers a variety of academic programs ranging from traditional disciplines like biology, economics, philosophy, and mathematics to interdisciplinary areas such as Latin American Studies and Law and Society. Students are also able to design their own programs of study in consultation with faculty. For further information about available academic programs as well as graduation requirements, see the 'Academics' section of our website. Transfer applicants are welcome to contact faculty members for more detailed information about our academic programs. Email addresses are available in the Faculty section of this website.
Priority is given for admission and scholarship awards to applicants who apply early. See the section on How to Apply for application deadlines and a detailed description of the process. It is important that applicants send all official transcripts to Florida Atlantic University. Students with less than 60 post-high school credits also need to submit standardized test scores (SAT/ACT) and high school transcripts.
The Honors College is a residential living-learning community and all incoming freshmen at the Wilkes Honors College are required to live on campus for the first two years of their enrollment. Transfer students entering the Wilkes Honors College with a fully completed associate of arts degree, which they pursued after high school, need not live on campus though they are encouraged to in order to take full advantage of the living-learning community of the Honors College. For more information about Residential Living, see the website section on Housing, and for information about campus resources see the links available under Student Resources.
