The purpose of the Honors Program is to provide a greater challenge and a richer experience for able and highly motivated students at Northeast State.
The Honors Program is open to first-time, transfer, and returning students. Admittance to the Honors Program as a first-semester freshman requires an ACT composite score of 25 or an SAT combined score of 1140. Students who have completed 12 hours of college-level coursework with a minimum grade point average of 3.25 may apply regardless of ACT or SAT scores.
To continue in the Honors Program, the student must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.25. Attendance at Honors Lyceum events is also expected. Honors classes are marked as such on the student's transcript. Students who complete 12 hours in the Honors Program will be recognized during the College's Honors Convocation; graduates completing 18 hours of Honors coursework will receive diplomas noting completion of the Honors Program.
