Eligibility & Request to Join

Requesting to join the Malone Honors Program is a separate step after a student has been admitted to the University. Participants may also be eligible for a renewable scholarship.


3.8 Cumulative GPA with no test scores    OR

3.6 Cumulative GPA with an ACT score of 26, SAT score of 1240, or CLT score of 81-83.

  • Motivated students who fall short of these requirements are also invited to request to join the program. In this case, please solicit two letters of reference (high school teachers are acceptable references), and have those individuals send their letters to honors@malone.edu. Students may elect to supplement their request with a narrative essay describing their academic career in order to provide additional insight into their grades and test scores.
  • No letters of reference are required for students that fit the required categories.
  • Transfer students who have participated in an honors program at their previous college are automatically admitted to the program and given credit for previous honors courses.
  • Qualified students who are already attending Malone can also be admitted to the Honors Program after their first semester. Talk to the Honors Program director about how to join.
