Direct Admission is a program designed to encourage honors students to excel in their academics and Pre-Business Foundation courses while at the University of Arizona.

* Honors Direct Admission is only available for Honors Students who were admitted to The University of Arizona in or prior to the Fall 2015 semester.  

Honors Students qualify for Direct Admission if they:

  • Maintain a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA at the time of application
  • Are on track for first-level honors (requires applicants to complete 15 Honors credits by the end of the semester in which they apply)
  • International Students must take ENGL 101 and 102 or ENGL 109H at The University of Arizona to qualify for Direct Admission

Students who meet the above criteria will be guaranteed:

  • Professional admission to the Eller College
  • First choice of major
  • Exempt from Skills Assessment Exam
  • Professional admission interview by someone in their field of interest
    • Due to the unique nature of the Global Cohort, these applicants will be asked to participate in the Global Cohort interviews

The Professional Admission timeline and process will look slightly different for students who meet the qualifications for Honors Direct Admission.  More information will be shared at the required advising appointment (following submission of the online application through eSMS).  Although admission to the Eller College is guaranteed for Direct Admission applicants, each student is still expected to meet all stated deadlines and requirements throughout the Professional Admission process.


 

Admission With Excellence

The Admission with Excellence initiative was designed to recognize the academic efforts of all high-achieving Eller Pre-Business students and support them in their Professional Development during their time at the University of Arizona as they prepare for future career opportunities.

Students qualify for Admission with Excellence if they:

  • Maintain a minimum 3.75 Cumulative GPA at the time of application, based on a minimum of 12 graded credits at The University of Arizona
  • Maintain a minimum 3.5 Foundation GPA at the time of application
  • International students must complete ENGL 101 and 102 or ENGL 109H at The University of Arizona in order to be eligible for Admission with Excellence

Students who meet the above criteria will be guaranteed:

  • Professional Admission to the Eller College
  • First choice of major and cohort
  • Exempt from Skills Assessment Exam
  • Professional Admission interview by someone in their field of interest

Due to the unique nature of the Global Cohort, these applicants will be asked to participate in the Global Cohort interviews.

Students who believe that they meet the requirements for Admission with Excellence should attend the AWE Professional Admission Orientation, submit the online application through eSMS, and then meet with an Academic Advisor.  The Professional Admission timeline and process will look slightly different for students who meet the qualifications for Honors Direct Admission.  More information will be shared at the required advising appointment (following submission of the online application through eSMS).  Although admission to the Eller College is guaranteed for Admission With Excellence applicants, each student is still expected to meet all stated deadlines and requirements throughout the Professional Admission process.
