Honors Program

Honors Application & Admission

For Incoming First-Years

The Admissions office actively recruits high school seniors with at least an 3.7 adjusted GPA (although the minimum may vary from year to year depending on the applicant pool).  This year our incoming class of 2021 had an average GPA of 3.98. Qualifying students are invited by admissions and asked to complete an online application.

For Rising Sophomores

At the end of the fall semester during freshmen year, the Honors program solicits faculty recommendations of current Merrimack freshmen. Admission is at the discretion of the Honors Program. Upon meeting with the Director, students are matriculated into the program, and are expected to complete all requirements in the remaining three years. If you are recommended for the Honors Program please contact the Honors Program Director. 

For Transfer Students

The Director of the program considers transfer students on a case by case basis. Generally, faculty advisors must see a strong academic background and recommend applicants who are keenly motivated to contribute to the program and complete it within three years.
