Admission Requirements and Application
A student must first apply to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh to be admitted to The Honors College.
The Honors College Application is test optional. It consists of a letter of interest that explains one’s reasons (aside from the desire to boost one’s résumé) for wanting to join The Honors College as well as descriptions of one’s academic achievements and interests. Applicants should feel free to include any additional information about themselves that they believe would be relevant to their candidacy, but the letter should not exceed one page. Applicants may also submit the name and contact information of a reference, but this is not required for admission.
For consideration, please complete our online form.
