Fort Hays State is looking for students for its first Honors College this fall.
The school began recruiting academically gifted students for an accelerated learning curriculum last week in Lawrence and Kansas City. It will hold a 13-city, three-state tour to recognize high school students and transfers who will receive Fort Hays State scholarships this fall.
Students in the new college must be a National Merit finalist or semi-finalist, winners of a National Achievement Award or have received National Hispanic Recognition status. They must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.7, a minimum ACT score of 33 or an SAT score of 1460. Other factors will be scholastic or community leadership.
The program will offer students honors-only floor of McMindes Hall and space in Forsyth Library.
