Admission to the Honors College is based on a range of criteria. We are looking for bright, energetic students who have demonstrated an ability to succeed in our rigorous academic program and to take advantage of the research, creative, and cultural opportunities available at Stony Brook . Admission is highly competitive.
Minimum criteria for consideration typically include a combined score of 1300 on the critical reading and math components of the SAT or an ACT composite score of 29 and an unweighted high school average of 93 or higher (on a 100 point scale) or 3.7 or higher (on a 4.0 scale). It is important to have succeeded in challenging courses while showing energy and leadership in extracurricular areas of interest, such as the visual, performing, and literary arts, athletics, sciences, community service, or student government.
*Meeting typical minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to consider applicants with credentials below these minimums based on extraordinary circumstances, including excelling in the face of adversity and overcoming life obstacles.
