Incoming freshmen students who have completed a rigorous program of study in secondary school, maintained a GPA of 3.75 or better, and have an ACT composite score of 28 or an SAT critical reading and math combined score of 1250 or higher are automatically offered admission to the IUPUI Honors College once they are admitted to IUPUI. This includes all Bepko Scholars and Fellows, Adam W. Herbert Presidential Scholars, Plater International Scholars, and Chancellor's Scholars.
