Honors Program : Applying

Incoming Freshman

Admission to the Peake Honors Program is generally granted to qualified incoming freshman with an academic GPA of 3.5 or above and a combined SAT score of 1200 or better. Once they are accepted to the College, eligible freshman will be sent an application to join the Honors Program.

Current UVA-Wise Students

Students who have just completed their freshman or sophmore years at the College and have done so with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above are also eligible to apply to the program. In addition to completing the application form, current students must also provide a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. These materials should be submitted to the Program Director in the late Spring or Summer (prior to the start of the academic year for which the student is applying).

Transfers

Admission to the Peake Honors Program is generally granted to incoming transfers with a college academic GPA of 3.5 or above. Once they are accepted to the College, eligible transfers will be sent an application to join the Honors Program. Transfers should also submit a letter of recommendation from a faculty member at their previous college.
