Does the Honors College require a specific major?
No, we encourage scholars to pursue their academic interests! The Honors College will work with any undergraduate major offered at Mississippi College.
How do I apply? What does the committee look for in an application?
The committee is looking for students committed to academic excellence, spiritual maturity, and civic engagement. As such, the committee will look beyond just test scores when evaluating candidates for the Honors College. We are also interested in your extracurricular activities, your letters of recommendation, how you answer the essay questions and how you present yourself in the on-campus interview.
Please visit our Honors College Admissions page where you will find all of the necessary information to apply.
Is there honors housing available?
Honors College students have the opportunity to live in University Place. University Place was recently built on Mississippi College's East Campus and features eight single-gender apartment buildings. Honors College scholars will be housed with four students per apartment.
Am I going to have time to participate in other campus activities?
Absolutely! Scholars within the Honors College are leaders on campus and are involved in a variety of clubs, social tribes, athletic teams and more!
