The final step of the Honors application process is for applicants to attend and submit a writing sample at the Honors Invitational. Each applicant to the Honors program writes a short essay on a topic chosen by our faculty in the department of English. At the invitational, applicants will be taken to our computer labs in small groups, where they given an hour to complete the essay
After the Invitational, the writing samples are scored by Ferris faculty. Decisions for admission are made on the basis of each student's Essay Score, application, High-school cumulative GPA, class rank and composite ACT/SAT score. We seek to admit about 350 first year students annually.
