Enrollment in the Honors Program reaches new heights at USD
“The class of students entering the Honors Program continues a trend in growing enrollment while maintaining the consistently high levels of academic achievement that have been one of the hallmarks of the program,” said Scott Breuninger, director of the Honors Program. “Entering Honors students have also been extremely successful in securing the competitive merit scholarships offered by USD and as student numbers have increased, incoming Honors students’ GPA and ACT scores have remained consistent and well above averages.”
The incoming class of Honors students’ average ACT score is 28.96, which is higher than the five-year average of 28.89. Likewise, the incoming students’ average high school GPA is 3.916, slightly above the five-year average of 3.915. In fact, 37 of the incoming Honors students were ranked first in their high school graduating class.
Over the past five years, USD Honors graduates have a 96 percent placement rate in graduate and professional programs. Please visit www.usd.edu/honors for more information about the Honors Program or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
