Please read all instructions before applying to the Honors Program.
Students interested in the Honors Program must complete the Honors Program application in addition to the regular admissions requirements for Clarkson University. The deadline for submitting your application materials to the Honors Program is January 25. Early applications are welcome and will be reviewed as they are completed. A complete Honors Program application should include the following:
- Honors Program Application which includes the following two short answer questions (200-250 words)
- The Honors Program has a special scholarship for Educational Enhancement Activities (HEES). Please read the HEES Guidelines and tell us how you will spend this money to enhance your education at Clarkson University.
- The Honors Program has a thesis requirement, so all students engage in original scholarship with a faculty member. There are a wide range of options. Given your interests and passion at the moment, what can you imagine working on and why?
If using the Common Application:
If you've already filled out the Common Application and are interested in applying to the Honors Program, you can fill out this form to let us know you're interested in applying. Once the form has been received, you should receive an email which we will tell you how to upload your short answer questions and resume.
If you have not filled out the Common Application you still need to fill out this form. Once you upload your Common Application (typically ~24 hours after submission), you will be notified how to upload your Honors short answer questions and resume.
If using the Clarkson Application:
While filling out the Clarkson Application, you will be asked if you are interested in the Honors Program. If you indicate yes, you will have a form available to fill out after you submit the main application. This form explains a bit more about our program and helps you determine if it is right for you. If you indicate you want to apply, then you will see two new items ready for you to upload - your Honors short answer questions and your Honors resume.
