Tarleton State University - Campus in Action Days

High school seniors are invited to take part in the Honors College Campus in Action Days at Tarleton State University on the below dates. For students with a strong commitment to excellence, Honors offers unique opportunities in both of our programs, the Honors Degree Program and the Presidential Honors Program. As part of either program, students become part of an honors community that combines the advantages of a small liberal arts college with the diversity of a comprehensive state university.

Here are some more details about the two honors programs that are available at Tarleton State University.

The Honors Degree Program
  • Applications are open now!
  • Students must be TSI-complete (come see Mrs. Parker for more information)
  • Minimum in the top 25% of your high school graduating class
  • Must have satisfactory test scores.
  • Accept between 250 and 325 students annually

The Presidential Honors Program
  • Minimum in the top 10% of your high school graduating class
  • At least a 1260 on the new SAT or a 27 on the ACT
  • Accept about 8-15 students annually

Both programs are part of the Honors College, which can make your education even more affordable. They offer over 150 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $7,000 annually. Also, many students in the honors college receive academic scholarships from other departments.

Members of the Honors College will live in honors hall, a brand new 440-bed facility with several rooms designs available at several price points. Based on the same concept as the Living Learning Communities, the Honors College provides a full experience of living together with other Honors students, as well as taking classes with them.

The Campus in Action Day will be an opportunity to experience an Honors class, tour the Honors Hall, meet current students, and talk with staff members about the programs. You will also have the option to eat lunch on campus with current students and have a campus tour during the visit.
