The committee considers for acceptance any freshman that enters college with an 1100 or higher SAT score (verbal and math) and a 3.25 high school GPA. Transfer students and Chowan rising sophomores must have earned at least a 3.5 GPA.
Honors classes provide opportunities for intensive class discussion and innovative teaching. Students who successfully complete the Honors College graduate with a special designation on their diplomas and transcripts.
