Willkes University Welcomes Honors Program Newest Class

Wilkes University is welcoming 40 new students to its Honors Program for the fall 2020 semester. The fall 2020 semester will begin on August 24 following the University's Welcome Weekend which provides first-year students with an introduction to life at Wilkes.

The Wilkes University Honors Program recruits exceptionally talented and highly motivated students. They receive an enhanced, interdisciplinary educational experience, which will drive intellectual, professional and personal achievement. To be accepted, students must have a SAT score of 1,100 or higher, or rank in the top 20 percent of their high school graduating class. Students accepted into the program reside in a living-learning community. Students in the program are eligible for an annual academic enrichment grant, unique in higher education, which students can use to help fund study-related expenses such as travel or technology. Other scholarship opportunities specific to honors students are also available upon acceptance to this program.
