Echols Scholars Program

About 170-200 unusually accomplished students are invited to join the Echols Scholars Program at the time of their admission into the University. The program combines a stimulating residential environment for first-year students with special academic advising. Echols scholars are exempt from the foreign language, second writing, and area requirements. First-year Echols scholars and all Echols scholars who maintain a 3.0 or higher cumulative grade point average have priority registration for courses and the option of declaring an Echols major. Jon Mikalson is director of the Echols Scholars Program, and Lynn Davis is the association dean.
