Motivated, well-rounded, and high-achieving undergraduates attending other universities and colleges who are considering transferring to Arizona State University should explore the many benefits of Barrett, The Honors College enrollment. Joining Barrett expands the opportunities available in the ASU 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.

Transfer students may apply to Barrett:

  1. During the first semester at their current school if they are looking to transfer to ASU and start in Barrett the second semester of what will be their first (freshman) year.
  2. During the second semester of their sophomore year (fourth overall semester) at their current school if they are looking to transfer to ASU and start in Barrett the first semester of what will be 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 third (junior) year. The Upper Division option works particularly well for community college students coming to ASU with an earned Associate’s degree.

  • Transfer 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 credits).
  • 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).
