Honors at Entrance students admitted under LMU’s Early Action program are guaranteed a space in the University Honors Program, provided you file the Early Action Honors Acceptance form by February 1, 2013. The form will be available December 1, 2012. Filing this Honors Acceptance form does not bind you to attend LMU. You still have until May 1 to send your Commitment Deposit and claim your seat in the Class of 2017. If you choose not to attend LMU, your seat in Honors will be offered to another deserving student. Filing this acceptance form confirms your interest in being in Honors if you choose LMU, and provides us with important information on your academic goals and plans.
If you decide after February 1 to apply to Honors, you may still do so. In this case your application would still receive full consideration for Honors, but the guarantee of a seat in the Honors program would no longer apply.
Regular Decision Candidates
All Regular Decision applicants interested in the University Honors Program must submit the online Honors Application. The application will be available January 14, 2013. No Regular Decision applicants receive automatic admission to the Honors Program, except students selected to receive Trustee or Presidential Scholarships. (See below).
For Regular Decision, applications will be reviewed beginning March 15, 2013. Those who have their application submitted by that date will be considered for Round 1. The results of the Round 1 review will be announced April 5. If a student’s application is not accepted during the first round, it may be considered during a proceeding round of review.
A second round of application review for those who apply by April 1, 2013 will be held and results will be announced April 15.
Trustee and Presidential Scholars
Trustee and Presidential Scholars are not required to complete an online Honors Application. These students are automatically accepted to the University Honors Program and will receive the Honors Compact along with notification of their scholarship. The student needs only sign and return the Honors Compact to be officially enrolled in the program. Enrollment in the University Honors Program is not required of Trustee and Presidential Scholars.
