Tiffany Sippial, director of the Honors College at Auburn University, recently shared statistics that highlighted the current total number of Honors College students in each college, the percentage change over the last four academic years, and data relative to the Fall 2022 incoming Honors class.

Of note, the total enrollment of College of Sciences and Mathematics, or COSAM, Honors College students is 501 for the 2022-23 academic year, resulting in a 20 percent increase since the 2019-20 academic year.

“COSAM continues to attract ambitious and talented Honors students, and of the ten colleges listed in the Honors College update, COSAM is second only to Engineering in the number of total Honors students,” said Bob Boyd, COSAM associate dean for academic affairs. “We are thus, ‘Honors rich!’”

Sippial also reported that the 2,229 total Honors College students are found in every college and in every major on campus. Of the total incoming class of 708 students, the average GPA is 4.34, and the average ACT score is 31. Fifty-eight percent of the incoming Honors class are out-of-state, 56 percent are female and 13 percent are historically underrepresented students.

The Honors College at Auburn University is designed to provide a select cohort of high-ability students a means to experience, explore, engage and elevate their academic dreams through the diverse opportunities found at a research university like Auburn. Honors College students benefit from small class sizes, a flexible curriculum, undergraduate research opportunities, access to graduate-level courses and more.
