Interested in transferring to the university and becoming a Franke Honors Wildcat? Here’s what you need to know.

When completing your application, click “yes” when prompted about your interest in the W.A. Franke Honors College.


  • Log into your Future Wildcat account.
  • Select your application with the “submitted” status.
  • Select “open application” in the pop-up.
  • On the status page that opens, select “supplemental applications” to start the Franke Honors College application.


Did you apply to the University of Arizona through the Common or Coalition app? 

You will need to create a Future Wildcat account before completing the steps outlined above. Please note that it can take up to 48 hours to link your Common or Coalition application to your new Future Wildcat account.

Here’s what you will need to submit:

  •  An activities résumé. Here you can let us know what you've been doing outside of the classroom. It could include extracurriculars, jobs, leadership, volunteering, or anything else you'd like us to know.
  • A letter of recommendation. You will provide contact information for your letter writer and we will send them a personalized link to upload their letter of recommendation.
  • A personal statement based on the prompt below. We recommend this personal statement be different from the optional personal statement in the University of Arizona’s application for admission.

Franke Honors College Personal Statement Prompt (Please Limit to 500 Words)

Tell the admissions committee a little about yourself. You might consider including some of the following: your background, academic interests, where those interests come from, what makes you unique, career or professional goals, obstacles you've overcome, why it's important for you to be part of the W. A. Franke Honors College, a talent you have, an extracurricular activity that's been particularly impactful, or anything else you would like for the committee to know.
