    • Read the Prospective Students section of this website, and look through the Current Students section to ensure that you understand what Honors at Tech offers.
    • If you are a TRANSFER or a CURRENT TECH STUDENT: See For Transfer and Continuing Students for full instructions. (NOTE: Transfer and current students use a separate application for admission to Honors.
  4. Consider scheduling an Honors Ambassadors visit during the lunch hour.
    Dedicated and trained Honors students contribute their hard-earned free time to meet with students and parents. Please schedule and confirm a meeting well in advance. The commitment of time and energy by Honors students ambassadors reflects their commitment to you.

  2. If you are an out-of-state/international student who wishes to apply for the HAS, you must apply for the HAS online in addition to applying for admission to the Honors Program.
