If you are a current Arizona undergraduate student not currently in the W.A. Franke Honors College, you can still apply for honors admission.

To be eligible to apply to the Franke Honors College, you must:

  • Be a currently enrolled University of Arizona student.
  • Attend an information session (you will receive a link to the application after attending the session) 
  • Have at least three semesters remaining before graduation.
  • Have a minimum 3.4 cumulative UArizona GPA to gain formal admission.
    • If you do not have a current UArizona GPA (this is your first semester at UArizona) you may still apply. Your formal admission is contingent on earning a 3.4 minimum GPA. 

Applications are reviewed by the Franke Honors College and are evaluated on multiple measures including:

  • Past academic performance.
  • Vision for making the most out of participation in the Franke Honors College.
  • A plan for satisfying the Franke Honors graduation requirements.
