Admission to the campus Honors Program is by invitation and is based primarily on the quality of academic accomplishments and potential. Life experiences beyond the classroom--experiences that enrich and edify--will also be taken into consideration.
Eligible incoming first-year students will receive a letter of invitation from the Honors Committee during the process of admission to the University. For students already enrolled at Penn State Greater Allegheny, the invitation is made by the Honors Committee at the end of each academic year. Under special circumstances, with the approval of the Director of Academic Affairs, students may be admitted to the program at other times by the Honors Committee.
There are separate qualifications for admission to the University program, the Schreyer Honors College.
