Honors Application & Admission

The Four Pillars

The admission office actively recruits the top 10% of high-school applicants. Qualifying students have been invited to join the honors program in their admission letter.

To accept this offer, please visit your admission portal to complete your Honors Reply Form and and submit your non-refundable enrollment deposit.

Recruitment of 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.

Transfers Too

The director considers transfer students for admission to the honors program 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.
