What’s the average academic profile for students admitted to the University of Vermont Honors College?
University of Vermont
Hi Nevan, thanks for asking. Invitation to the Honors College is based on high school academic performance; no additional application is required. Based on recent history, it is likely that invitees will have a GPA of 3.85 (out of a 4.0 scale) or above, and will have taken the most challenging courses available at their high schools. That said, the Honors College looks holistically at applicants, and the grade point average is a suggested range only.
