Admission to the Undergraduate Honors Program

For high school students, admission is based on academic record. A strong interest in mathematics and natural sciences will be helpful, but high school computer science is not required. Minimum requirements are:

  • Combined SAT score on two traditional components (critical reading and math) of at least 1300
  • Unweighted high school average of 93% or better in a rigorous program of study

For current computer science students at Stony Brook University, admission is based on:

  • A minimum GPA of at least 3.5 both overall and in computer science
  • Completion of 3 computer science courses, including 2 upper division courses

Prospective students should complete the Stony Brook University application and then submit the online Freshman Supplemental Application. For details and to apply go to; Current Stony Brook students may submit applications directly to the Computer Science Undergraduate Office.
