For Prospective Students
The Honors Program: for the scholar who wants to be more
Welcome to the Honors at Tennessee Tech! In a nutshell, Honors provides smaller, in-depth classes and co-curricular activities in leadership, service, personal growth, team-building, and greater cultural understanding. Most of all, Honors is about being more: a scholar who is openminded, a citizen of the world, a creative problem solver.
Tech Honors is for students who have the initiative, intellectual drive, and creative thinking skills to explore and inquire. It's not about what looks good on a resume: Honors means serving the world more deeply through a commitment to integrating critical thinking, servant leadership, and continued growth. Learning how to ask more penetrating questions in all aspects of life--and doing so with a supportive community of thinkers--is at the heart of the Honors experience.
If you have a composite ACT score of 26 or above, you are eligible to join Honors as an incoming freshman. If you are a current student or are transferring from another university, you must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA after completing at least twelve credit hours.
