Honors Program

Honors Application & Admission

Incoming First-Years

The admission office actively recruits high-school seniors with an adjusted GPA of 3.70 or greater (although the minimum may vary from year to year, depending on the applicant pool). The 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 every fall semester, faculty are asked to nominate current Merrimack freshmen for admission to the honors program. Acceptance 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 their remaining three years at the college. If you are recommended for the honors program, please contact the program director. 

For Transfer Students

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