What we look for in an Honors Student
The Belmont University Honors Program is highly competitive, admitting only 54 students each year. Candidates for the Honors program exhibit academic excellence and growth throughout their high school experience, have engaged their communities in creative and productive ways, and generally score in the 90th percentile on the SAT or ACT. They are superior writers and thinkers, and demonstrate extraordinary creativity, curiosity, introspection, and perseverance.
Potential for Superior Academic and Creative Performance. The Belmont Honors students are the stars of tomorrow, reaching that pinnacle not just because of good grades or soaring SAT scores but because they seek the best in themselves.
Think Creatively. The Belmont Honors Program is a world of ideas, and our students keep reaching for new horizons. The program encourages students to explore the major of their dreams, even if they need to create it! The only limit is a student's ambition.
Enjoy Exploring Interconnections. The Honors Curriculum brings together faculty from across the university to lead team-taught seminars that examine, for example, how scientific knowledge in a society affects its cultural arts, or how social structures shape institutions and beliefs.
