Samford University


How to Apply

To apply for University Fellows, Samford's honors college experience, you must have a minimum ACT score of 28 or SAT-I score of 1250 (Math and Critical Reading). The University Fellows application includes the following components: demographic information, comprehensive résumé, 500-750 word essay, and academic letter of recommendation from a teacher. 

You may work on your general Samford application as well as your University Fellows application concurrently. In other words, you do not need to wait until you receive admission notification from Samford before beginning your Fellows application. In fact, we encourage you to start working on your application before you receive your admission notification. 

Our application deadline is December 15, 2014. If you have any questions, please contact Carlson Coogler at
