About Macon State
The Honors Program at Macon State College is designed to help academically advanced students develop their intellectual potential through challenging educational activities. Its main goal is to encourage these students in individual, rational, and creative thinking. In addition, the Honors Program seeks to promote academic excellence and intellectual independence on the part of each student.
All entering students with a high school GPA of at least 3.50 and/or a combined SAT score of 1100 or higher, with a verbal score of at least 580, will be invited to participate in the Honors Program. Students who do not meet the high school GPA or SAT requirements listed above may apply for admission to the program after earning fifteen or more semester hours of college-level work. Decisions on admission are made by the Honors Program Director and members of the Honors Program Committee after a review of the application and the cumulative GPA, SAT scores, recommendations, and interviews.
The Honors Program is intended to serve all students who qualify for admission any time during their enrollment at Macon State College. Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative academic GPA of 3.00 in order to remain in the Honors Program. All Honors Program students in good standing are eligible for membership in the Honors Student Association.
