The best don’t rest when they get to the top. It’s one reason we designed our Honors Program to challenge our top students as much as reward them.
As a Bentley Honors student, you’ll get access to special classes presented in a highly interactive seminar format, emphasizing the study of original works (instead of textbooks) and contributions made by you and your fellow students. You’ll be involved in individual, group and faculty research projects, and enjoy social and networking opportunities on campus and throughout Greater Boston.
Let’s get to know each other better
There is no formal application process for admission into the Honors Program. All prospective students are considered for the program when they apply to Bentley. Approximately the top 8% to 10% of incoming first-year students are invited to join the program upon acceptance to Bentley, and will receive the invitation as part of their acceptance package.
Academic factors that may be considered for admission are high school course rigor, GPA, AP test scores, and SAT/ACT scores among other factors. In general, the program seeks out motivated, academically strong, and well-rounded students with leadership potential. Moreover, many honors students are involved in extracurricular activities, community service, and/or athletics.
If you are not initially invited into the program but have a strong academic record and desire to be challenged, you may also apply for admission to the program during your first year of courses at Bentley.
