COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus State University announced today, Feb. 21, that the institution is developing an Honors College to broaden opportunities for current and future gifted students.

The Honors College will include students from all four of the university's academic colleges: Arts, Business and Computer Science, Education and Health Professions, and Letters and Sciences.

Honors College admission requirements will mirror those of the current honors program:

-High school academic grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
-Combined math-reading SAT score of at least 1,200 with a minimum of 550 on each subsection or an ACT composite score of 26.
-No college-prep curriculum deficiencies preventing regular admission to CSU.

Cindy Ticknor, a mathematics professor who has been leading CSU's Honors Program since 2009, says, "We need to provide that extra effort to our highest-achieving students, and we can do it through a college."

Tom Hackett, Columbus State provost and vice president for academic affairs, announced the creation of the Honors College, effective fall 2014, at a luncheon today for prospective honors students, as well as their parents, current Honors Program students and many of the faculty who guide their studies.

"The tremendous increase in interest and numbers in our Honors Program reflects our faculty's commitment to attracting and supporting the brightest of students," Hackett said. "Establishing an Honors College is the next step in this commitment to student research and creative endeavors."
