Students interested in Barrett, The Honors College, first apply to Arizona State University and then may begin the separate Barrett application. Please note: the university application must only be submitted; admission to ASU need not be conferred before a student starts the Barrett application.
Prospective honors college students should be mindful of deadlines and work to ensure that a complete application is on file by the appropriate date. A complete Barrett application is defined as:
- The student has finished all sections of the application, including the required essay.
- The Barrett application has been submitted not just saved.
- All letters of recommendation identified on the application have been received (review policy).
- The student has been admitted to an Arizona State University undergraduate degree program with a test score, ACT or SAT, on file with Undergraduate Admissions. Though a Barrett application may be started and submitted before ASU admission is conferred, it cannot go to evaluation until university acceptance is formally awarded.
* Prospective Barrett students should apply to ASU at least 4-6 weeks before the appropriate Barrett deadline. This includes submitting the ASU application, official test scores, and high school transcripts. Students who wait to apply to ASU until a few weeks before a Barrett admissions deadline will struggle to have a complete honors college application submitted on time.
