Letters of Recommendation
If you meet the Honors Program admission requirements, then no letters of recommendation are necessary.
Otherwise, your Honors Program application can still be considered but you will need to submit two letters of recommendation from teachers or professors who know you well through the online application link.
Applications for admission to the Honors Program are considered on a rolling basis, and students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
