Cook College offers two collegewide honors programs:
Cook College General Honors Program is a four-year program for which
university Merit Scholars and selected high school seniors (with
secondary school grade-point averages of at least 3.5 and superior SAT
scores) who apply to Cook College prior to the application deadline are
invited to compete. Students who join the program are awarded
supplementary merit scholarships. There are approximately 80 students
in the program.
2.The George H. Cook Scholars Program is Cook
College's senior honors thesis program. Students in the top 15 percent
of their class in the fall term of the junior year are automatically
invited to participate, but Cook College juniors nominated by a faculty
member may join the program in their final three terms.
Additionally, several departments offer honors in the major program of
study to students who fulfill department requirements, which typically
include honors courses and/or independent research projects.
