Honors Scholarship
You may or may not know that we also offer an Honors scholarship for our incoming students. Now is the time to apply for that if you qualify, so complete the application by clicking here.

Honors Program Petition
We know that nothing has been normal about the past year, and that includes your high school education, college prep opportunities, and the application process. The usual requirements for an incoming Honors student are a 3.5 or above high school G.P.A. and a 1200 SAT score or 27 one-time ACT score.

However, if you know that you are “Honors-worthy” but do not meet one of these criteria, we still encourage you to apply to join us! You will just need to fill out the Honors Admit Petition by clicking here, and email it to That gives you a chance to explain why your G.P.A. is lower than you had aimed for, why your test scores are not quite high enough, why you were not able to take the tests at all, etc.

These qualifications are the most efficient way for us to spot Honors students, but they are not the only qualifications that matter.  If you think the Honors Program is right for you and will add to your WVWC experience, there is a great chance that you will be a good fit, so get in touch!
