Home / Admissions / Current ASU

Motivated, well-rounded, and high-achieving undergraduates currently attending Arizona State University should consider Barrett, The Honors College, to further enhance their already excellent ASU experience. Joining Barrett expands the opportunities available in the academic major, grows an individual’s network of caring faculty and staff, and provides access to the customized honors education that seamlessly integrates into any degree program available at the four metropolitan Phoenix campuses of ASU. After earning their ASU degrees, Barrett graduates attend the best graduate schools and have great success finding jobs in their field.

At present, Barrett enrollment is not available to students pursuing a solely online degree or in a major at the ASU Lake Havasu City campus. Prospective honors college students should be mindful of deadlines and work to ensure that a complete application is on file by the appropriate date.

Current ASU students may apply to Barrett:

  1. During their first ASU semester, looking to enroll in Barrett at the start of the second semester of their first (freshman) year.
  2. During the second semester of their sophomore year (fourth semester of ASU enrollment), looking to enroll in Barrett at the start of the first semester of their junior (third) year.

Eligibility

Eligibility

Option 1 above reflects Lower Division enrollment in Barrett, The Honors College. The Lower Division honors curriculum is designed for students spending a minimum of seven semesters at ASU and Barrett, not including summer sessions. Lower Division students cannot have more than 18 college credits accumulated at the time they enter Barrett. Credits earned while in high school (for example, advanced placement credits or dual enrollment college coursework) are not counted toward the 18 credit maximum.

Option 2 above reflects Upper Division enrollment in Barrett, The Honors College. The Upper Division honors curriculum is designed for students who have completed approximately half of their undergraduate degree program and are looking to enroll in Barrett during the start of what is traditionally considered their junior (third) year.

  • Current ASU students interested in the Upper Division option must be on target to have completed a minimum of four academic semesters and 48 credit hours prior to their planned enrollment in Barrett. The 48 credit hours may not include any college credits earned while in high school (e.g. AP or dual enrollment).
  • The Upper Division option is designed for completion over the course of a student’s final four ASU semesters, not including summer sessions. Therefore, it is mandatory that prospective students have a minimum of four academic semesters and approximately 60 credit hours remaining to complete their ASU graduation requirements at the time of honors enrollment (not at the point of application submission).
