Admission Requirements for Incoming First Year Students

Thank you for your interest in joining our Honors community. The Honors experience is designed for full-time students who plan to take the majority of their courses in person on our Glassboro campus.* High school students applying for admissions to Rowan University for the fall semester will be invited to apply to Honors based on a minimum unweighted GPA of 3.70

Students must first be accepted to Rowan University in order to receive their Honors invitation and application link via email. The Honors application consists of an essay and recommendation letter from a high school faculty member. Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate understanding of our program and how they will contribute to our community of citizen scholars.

We are no longer accpeting application for Fall 2024 admission. Students who are not eligible fall admissions or who missed the application deadline, will have an opportunity to apply for the spring semester. Application information will be provided on our website under Prospective Students – Current Rowan Students. Questions about the Honors application process can be directed to 856-256-4775 or

*Please note that our program is not available to students enrolled through Rowan Global or other online university pathways.
