Please read all instructions before applying to the Honors Program.
Students interested in applying to the Honors Program should first apply for admission to Clarkson University. After submitting your Clarkson University application, you will receive your username and password for your application status page, and you should see the Honors Program Application.
If you do not see the Honors Program Application on your status page you may submit this form to let us know you are interested. The application will be added to your application status page within 24 hours.
The Honors Program Application consists of two short answer questions and a resume, and these need to be submitted by February 1st (or March 31 for transfer admission). Early applications are welcome and they will be reviewed by the Admission Committee as they are completed.
Submit an essay answering the following two short answer questions (200-250 words). Both questions must be answered:
- 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?
