A history of success
Since the Honors Program began in 2003, more than 450 students from 25 countries have participated. Fifty percent of all Honors Program students have a 3.75 or higher grade point average, and 10 percent have maintained a 4.0.
To be admitted into the Honors Program, students must have a minimum 3.5 GPA and be in the top 10 percent of their high school graduating class, or achieve high placement scores on high school standardized testing (SAT or ACT). Current SPC students must have a cumulative GPA average of 3.5 or higher, submit an essay or writing sample and present two letters of recommendation from SPC faculty or administrators.
