Honors Programs

Cook College offers two collegewide honors programs:

1.The 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.
