Honors College Dual-Enrollment Program
High achieving high school students enrolled at Columbus State through Dual Enrollment
are invited to participate in the Honors College.
This program creates another mechanism for support for these students and grants them access to take lower division courses offered through the Honors College. Because these courses are limited in size, students are able to engage with their professors, learn about their research, and participate in unique field experiences. Join Honors College students and outstanding faculty as they work on archaeological digs or tours of historical sites, tour museums and more! This also allows them to get ahead on earning the Honors Seal on their diploma if they complete their degree at Columbus State.
The Honors College at Columbus State University provides an innovatively delivered curriculum that challenges academically talented students to individualize their degree programs. Educational programming is available to students admitted to the Honors College as undergraduates or Dual Enrollment students completing the Honors Program of Study. In the College, students engage in co-curricular learning experiences that include broad, cross-disciplinary perspectives and opportunities for undergraduate research and creative endeavors.
All Columbus State University Dual Enrollment students can apply to join the Honors College. Admission to Dual-Enrollment students are extended based on the following criteria:
- An ACT composite score of 24 or a combined SAT Math and Reading score of at least
1100 with a minimum of 500 on each subsection - SAT Scores received since the March
2016 test date must be converted to the previous scoring scale.
- A high school academic GPA of 3.5 or higher
