Honors Requirements
Entering freshmen with an ACT composite score of 25 or above, a high school GPA of 3.4 or higher, and a ranking in the top 20% of their high school class may apply to be directly admitted to the Honors Program at Ohio State Lima, and carry the “H” designation, indicating membership in the Honors Program. Those with only one or the other of these qualifications, are invited to be “Honors Candidates”. These students can take Honors classes, participate in Honors events, and earn official admission to the Honors Program by demonstrating high academic performance.
