Exceptional students should investigate Honors Programs at the colleges to which they are applying. Some have minimum test scores and GPA’s, but others do not. For colleges in Alabama, you can use the “Honors Program Contacts” link listed in my BlogRolls (on the right side of this page), or check them out at the college websites. Pay careful attention to the deadlines and application procedures. Feel free when you visit a college campus to make an appointment to speak with someone from the Honors Program.
