Interested in applying to Freshman Science Honors?

Students can apply to Freshman Science Honors after they have been admitted to the University.  Please note: Only incoming freshmen students with a declared natural science major in USC College will be considered for admission to this program. The class of 2014 had an SAT average over 2200 and their high school GPA average was over 4.0.  These numbers refect the average from the class of 2014 and not the minimums for the class of 2015.  But SAT/ACT scores and high school GPA are heavily considered in the admissions process.  Most of the FSH students have taken AP Calculus (AB and/or BC) and AP Chemistry and/or AP Biology with a score of 4 or 5 on the assocaited exam.

The 2015 deadline is April 15 by midnight.  Admission decisions will be emailed on or before Friday, April 24.  All applications received after this deadline will be considered on a space available basis after May 1.
