Timeline for Applying to the Honors College

Applying to the Honors College

Applying to the Honors College can be done in 2 ways:

Honors Application

  1. You will need your BGSU application username (email address) and password to access the application.  Note: this is for your BGSU application, NOT your MyBGSU username and password.
  2. If you applied through the Common Application, you should receive an email with login instructions to create your username and password.

Access the Honors Application through your BGSU Application Status Page

Please enter the BGSU application username (email used for BGSU application) and password you used to apply online. If you do not have a username or password, please contact the Office of Admissions. If you applied online, but forgot your username or password, we can help you reset your password.

Did you apply to BGSU through the Common Application?

If you applied to BGSU through the common application, you should check your email to be able to set up your BGSU application status page.  This email will come 1 day after you apply through the Common Application, so you will not be able to apply immediately to the Honors College after submitting your Common Application.  The email should be titled BGSU has received your Common Application!.

This email will contain information about how to set up a password and also how to access the BGSU Honors College application.

You will be able to save your application, and edit it until it is submitted.  If you have questions about the Honors application, please contact honors@bgsu.edu or call 419-372-8504.
