Cleveland State welcomes new class of honors students


Honors College Students Have Demonstrated Superior Academic Achievement

Among its record-breaking 1,900 first-year students, Cleveland State University welcomed its new class of honors students to campus this week. The 115 students are among a select number enrolled in the University Honors Program at the Jack, Joseph & Morton Mandel Honors College. They come from as close as Cleveland and as far as Florida, and their majors represent all of the university's colleges.

The Jack, Joseph & Morton Mandel Honors College was established in 2014 to serve the needs of academically talented and highly motivated students. It houses two distinct programs – the University Honors Program and the University Scholars Program – and serves a diverse group of students from a full range of backgrounds.

Each year, the University Honors Program accepts a very limited number of students; approximately 40 first-year students and 20 juniors. The University Scholars Program has the capacity to admit a larger number of students than the University Honors Program; however, all students accepted into Honors College Programs have demonstrated superior academic achievement through their coursework and results on tests such as the ACT and SAT.
