What We Look For

Selection for Business Honors is highly competitive. We seek students whose academic excellence is matched by strong character, leadership skills, and teamwork.

Academic measures are used only as a threshold for review. No combination of test scores, grades, and/or class rank guarantees acceptance into the program. Co-curricular involvement and achievement is heavily weighted in the application review process (campus and community involvement, leadership, personal circumstances, etc.). Students are selected for their perceived potential to succeed both in and out of the classroom at Texas A&M based on their proven success in the high school setting.
