Incoming First Year Students


Please check back in October for applications.  Reserving a place for you in the Drake University Honors Program will be on a rolling basis beginning October 15, with a priority deadline of March 1. Applications received after March 1 will be considered on a space-available basis.


Applicants will hear first by email the Honors committee response.  Depending on the number of essays received at any given time, the review could take up to six weeks.  Applicants who aim for the priority deadline of March 1 will receive a response prior to April 1.
