Application Process

While oriented primarily toward students who have achieved a certain level of academic success (as demonstrated by a 3.7 GPA and a 27 ACT/1820 SAT score), the honors program is open to any students interested in committing to this challenging, but rewarding, experience. Students who wish to apply should complete the Wisconsin Lutheran College application materials by 1 March and include a letter expressing their interest in applying to the honors program. This letter, approximately 250-300 words in length, should explain both why they are interested in this text-based general education curriculum and how they believe their participation in this program will benefit them.
