The University of Arizona Honors College

Freshman Review 2014
Instructions and Application
Due to the high number of applications we have received, Freshman Review applications are due by MARCH 1st, 2014.
Our Mission Statement:

The mission of the UA Honors College is to inspire extraordinary students to develop an enduring spirit of inquiry, discovery, and responsibility.


The purpose of Freshman Review is to allow students to highlight personal and academic accomplishments that may facilitate possible Honors admission. Before proceeding, please carefully read the notes below. There are many reasons to complete this application EARLY:
Campus Housing

If you choose to sign up for on-campus housing, you will be able to self-assign to a residence hall. However, students who are not yet admitted into the Honors College will not have the option of selecting an Honors residence hall (Árbol de la Vida or Yuma Hall). If you gain Honors admission after you have self-assigned to a non-Honors hall, you may have the option of re-assigning yourself into an Honors hall if you so choose, provided that there are still spaces available.


You should not wait to sign up for housing, as housing may fill up before Freshman Review is complete. Please note that acceptance into the Honors College does not guarantee placement into an Honors hall, but submitting your Freshman Review materials early will increase your chance of having the opportunity to re-assign into an Honors hall.
New Student Orientation

Do not sign up for New Student Orientation yet if you are participating in Freshman Review. Honors students have special orientation sessions. If you have already signed up for orientation and are subsequently admitted into the UA Honors College, you will need to switch into an Honors orientation session online through the Next Steps Center. Please note there is a $30 fee to change orientation dates. Therefore it is advised that you wait to sign up for orientation until after your Freshman Review application has been processed. Again, participating in Freshman Review early means you will receive a decision in time to choose from a wider range of open orientation dates.


Freshman Review Timeline

The UA Honors College evaluates Freshman Review applications on a rolling basis. You should be notified of our decision within three weeks of our receipt of your completed application. Freshman Review applications will be reviewed beginning January 1st, 2014. Applications will be accepted until March 1st, 2014. Applications postmarked after March 1st will not be considered. The Honors College may stop accepting Freshman Review applications at any point before March 1st if we have received applications from more students than we can reasonably accommodate. Additionally, we reserve the right to delay a decision for any reason. All materials should be submitted directly to the Honors College, not to the Office of Admissions. For all of the reasons listed above, it is recommended that you complete your Freshman Review application as soon as possible.



Application Components:
Contact Information Sheet

Please complete the contact sheet (on page 3) and attach it to the front of your application.


Short Essays

Please include your typed responses with the essay questions repeated before each response.


Short Essay #1. This is the Honors essay question from the UA application. Even if you already submitted an Honors essay with your UA application, please include a copy of it. Please limit your response to 500 words or less.
What does commitment mean to you and how do you demonstrate commitment in your life? How can an Honors education help you make an impact in areas that you've shown commitment?
Short Essay #2. Please highlight any challenges or extenuating circumstances that have affected your academic performance. Please limit your response to 350 words or less.
Short Essay #3. What specific aspects of the UA Honors College do you find most appealing and how would you contribute as a member? Please limit your response to 350 words or less.
Teacher Recommendation Form

Please have one of your teachers in an academic course (i.e., English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, History, Government, etc.) complete the teacher evaluation form (pages 4-7). The teacher you select does not have to be a current teacher but it is recommended that you select someone who can speak about your recent academic performance. Your teacher must return the form to you in a sealed envelope with his/her signature across the seal. We will not accept separate letters of recommendation.


Give your teacher plenty of time to complete your recommendation form. Select a teacher and give him or her the form before starting your application, as this will enable you to send in your application earlier.
7th Semester Transcript

Please include a copy of your high school transcript through the 7th semester (fall of senior year). Providing a school profile along with the high school transcript is also particularly helpful so that we may interpret your academic record in the context of the school you are attending. You may submit either an official or unofficial copy of your transcript. Progress reports may also be acceptable.

Student Signature

Instructions to the teacher:

Please complete the following required form on behalf of the applicant. Separate letters of recommendation will not be accepted. Please ensure that your contact information provided on the previous page is complete and accurate. All contact information is confidential.


The student named above is seeking admission into the UA Honors College. Initial admission to the Honors College is based on a combined assessment of the unweighted academic grade point average; ACT and/or SAT test score(s); and rigor of coursework (AP, IB, honors, accelerated, or university/dual-enrollment/community college). This assessment takes place at the time of admission to the University of Arizona.
While this student was admitted to the University of Arizona for the Fall of 2014, he or she did not initially receive admission into the Honors College and has opted to submit supplemental materials as part of Freshman Review, our secondary review process. Our Freshman Review committee would like to have a better sense of this individual's potential as an active and contributing member of our Honors community and his or her academic preparedness.
Please note that this evaluation is time-sensitive. The UA Honors College may stop accepting applications at any time. Please return the complete form to the student in a sealed and signed envelope so that he or she may include the form with the other application materials.
If you have any questions, please contact the UA Honors College at 520-621-6901.
