    Required materials include:

    • High school transcript with qualifying GPA

    • Two Honors Essays 

    • Five Honors Short Answers 

    • Standardized Test Report of qualifying score (Note: the September 2013 ACT and October 2013 SAT will be accepted, provided that the score report is sent directly to Yeshiva University as part of the exam registration.)

    Students applying Early Decision to the Honors Program will receive one of four decisions (Note: all scholarship offers apply for four years on the New York campus):

    1) Acceptance into the Honors Program and award of a full tuition scholarship

    2) Acceptance into the Honors Program and offer of a different Distinguished Scholarship ($30,000)

    3) Acceptance into the Honors Program with award pending

    4) Acceptance and award pending


    1) Acceptance into the Honors Program and award of a full tuition scholarship

    Students offered admission to the Honors Program together with a full tuition scholarship agree to: 

    • Make no further college applications
    • Withdraw any other existing applications to other colleges
    • Enroll at Yeshiva University's New York campus for the Fall 2014 semester or the Fall semester immediately following post-high-school Torah study. Torah study may be pursued for more than one year, but must be in full year (not single semester) increments.

     
     

    2) Acceptance into the Honors Program and offer of a top-tier scholarship ($30,000)

    Students offered admission to the Honors Program together with a top-tier scholarship will have the choice to accept their scholarship as binding with the same requirements detailed above for full tuition scholarships or reject the scholarship.  Students who reject the scholarship will be considered again for scholarship amounts in the Spring and can receive an offer for the same or different scholarship amounts but are not bound by agreement to withdraw applications and are free to apply elsewhere.  Students who accept the top-tier scholarship agree to:

     

    • Make no further college applications
    • Withdraw any other existing applications to other colleges
    • Enroll at Yeshiva University's New York campus for the Fall 2014 semester or the Fall semester immediately following post-high-school Torah study. Torah study may be pursued for more than one year, but must be in full year (not single semester) increments.

    Students who reject the scholarship will be considered again for scholarship amounts in the Spring and can receive an offer for the same or different scholarship amounts but are not bound by agreement to withdraw applications and are free to apply elsewhere. 

     

    3) Acceptance into the Honors Program, with award pending

    Students who are accepted to the Honors Program but do not receive offers of full or top-tier scholarships will be considered for scholarships in the Spring along with Regular Decision Honors students and are often offered substantial academic scholarships.

     

    4) Acceptance and award pending

    Some students may not be admitted into the Honors Program at the time of Early Decision application, and both their decisions and, if applicable, awards, will be determined during the Regular Selection process in the Spring. 

    The Honors Committee will inform all applicants for Early Decision by December 15, 2013. Those applicants who will be reconsidered are informed of the Committee's reconsideration by April 1, 2014.
