SEU to Host Honors Visit Event

At SEU, Christ-centered academics are the very foundation of our university, so we welcome students who are ready to put their faith at the center of their learning.

We also recognize that many of our students graduate high school with accolades such as high GPAs and exemplary standardized testing scores. That’s why we have an honors program specifically dedicated to these students … to meet them where they are and help them continue their path of academic achievement.

Special Event: Scholars Preview Days

To encourage future SEU students to explore the Honors Program, SEU is hosting a special Preview Days event specifically for potential honors students. Scholars Preview Days will follow a similar format to our Preview Days events, but with specialized sessions.

During this two-day event, students will get information about SEU’s honors student scholarships and learn how their transferrable credits (such as those from dual enrollment, AP and Cambridge) will be applied toward their degree at SEU. Students will connect with current honors students and faculty. They’ll also enjoy all the excitement of SEU’s amazing visit events including free meals in our campus restaurant, a chapel service and campus tours.

Honors Program Benefits

The SEU Honors Program consists of students with a solid record of academic success. Not only do they take some of their general education and major-specific courses at the honors level, they also complete a Capstone Thesis which serves as excellent training for future graduate studies.

Additional benefits of the program include:

  • Early course registration
  • Graduation designation
  • Community and social events
  • Scholarship funds

Honors Program Admission

Since the Honors Program involves additional work beyond SEU’s already-rigorous curriculum, there are additional requirements beyond university admission and space is limited.

  • Admission is first open by invitation to students with at least a 3.8 GPA, with a minimum SAT score of 1960 (old SAT scale) or 1380 (new SAT scale); or a minimum ACT score of 30.
  • Students may apply if they have at least a 3.8 GPA, with an SAT score of 1800–1959 (old SAT scale) or 1290–1379 (new SAT scale); or an ACT score between 27 and 29.
  • To remain in the program, students must take at least 12 hours of classes each semester at SEU and maintain at least a 3.6 GPA.

Called to Achieve

“We’re consistently impressed by the caliber of our students and the work they do while they’re here,” said SEU Professor of Education Dr. Gordon Miller, who serves as the chair of the Honors Program. “It’s our privilege to help mold them and then see what they go on to achieve after graduation. We join together as scholars … united in faith, to the glory of God.”
