Admission to the Honors Program

University Scholars

Joining the SPU Honors Program

Some incoming high school and transfer students will be invited to join the Honors Program when they apply to SPU based upon academic potential, intellectual ambition, and interest. You will find next steps to join in your Seattle Pacific Portal.

Current SPU students or those who didn’t receive an invitation upon admission are also warmly encouraged to apply to the Honors Program if this intellectually challenging, interdisciplinary, and inclusive curricular program seems like the right one for you. We want to be sure not to miss anyone who belongs in the University Scholars. If it seems interesting to you and you are up for the challenge then please apply online.

If you have questions about the program, please contact the Honors Program director, Dr. Christine Chaney, directly at
