Application Requirement

Completed Honors College applications, including all of the documents listed above, are due by December 12, 2022. Please advise your recommenders of this due date.  Application documents (excluding recommendation letters) will be submitted electronically via the MC Student Application Portal.  

Interview Process

Upon review of all completed applications, selected applicants will be invited to participate in the Honors College interview process. Interviews for the Honors College will be conducted on January 30, 2023 and February 2, 2023. Applicants to the Honors College will be interviewed in a panel format by Honors College faculty members. A dinner will be held on the evening of your HC interview at 6:30 p.m., and all competing scholars and their accompanying family are invited to attend.

While on-campus interviews are preferred, we understand that travel may prevent some students from scheduling a campus visit. In such cases, an online interview will be scheduled via Zoom in late January or early February. On-campus interviews will be held with the safety of incoming students, their families, and the MC community in mind.

Additional Opportunities 

Honors College applicants are strongly encouraged to also compete in the Select Scholars Competition; the two competitions are not mutually exclusive. Students also participating in this competition will have an additional interview with the Admissions Committee on the following day. Please see the Select Scholars Competition page for additional information and requirements.


If you have any questions or problems with the application process, please contact Dr. Erin Norcross, Director of the Honors College, at 601.925.3936 or email
