All first-year applicants are automatically considered for Leeds Honors based on the academic credentials on their admissions application. Students can qualify for Leeds Honors by meeting any of the following parameters:
GPA + Test Score
The GPA on your application is a 3.9 or higher (weighted or unweighted) and you report an ACT of 33+ or an SAT of 1450+
GPA + Class Rank
The GPA on your application is a 3.9 or higher (weighted or unweighted) and your school reports you in the top 5% of your graduating class.
Students without a class rank or ACT/SAT score can qualify by falling within the top 5% of admitted students based on the GPA alone (weighted or unweighted). GPA parameters are dependent on the competitiveness of the admit pool and additional consideration may be given for academic rigor, grade consistency, and course selection.
There are many benefits to the Leeds Honors Program. Here are just a few:
- Smaller more rigorous classes with like-minded peers
- Dedicated academic advisors
