Dear Prospective Student,

Given these unprecedented times, there is a lot of uncertainty.  Understandably, you may be unsure about going to a university this fall.  Many others share similar feelings and concerns.  So, if you made a late decision to stay home and wait on a 4-year school, we have some good news to share with you.  You can still apply for admission to our renowned Honors Program: Honors at Brookdale. We will be accepting applications until August 8th.  After that date, we close the process for this upcoming semester.  But we will also accept applicants for spring admission.  Another option is to try an Honors class without being in the program.  That option is permitted only once.

We strongly encourage you to view everything our website has to offer you, including our new brochure, testimonials, transfer agreements, benefits, universities to which our students have transferred, and more.  Our hope is that you will find Honors at Brookdale to be a great springboard to wherever you desire to transfer and continue your educational goals.

Thank you for considering Honors at Brookdale.  I wish you and your loved ones all the best in these trying times.


Professor Moschberger
Coordinator, Honors at Brookdale


Want to ensure successful consideration?

Adhere to the following:

  1. Make sure you thoroughly proofread your entire packet.  Having any errors when applying to an Honors Program just doesn’t look good.
  2. Ensure application completeness.  If your application is incomplete, it will not be considered.
  3. Even if you sent your transcripts, SAT scores, and letters of recommendation to Admissions, you must separately send them to us (Honors at Brookdale). Unofficial copies will be sufficient for now.
  4. Due to campus closure, please EMAIL your COMPLETE application packet to Professor Moschberger at  On the subject line put “FALL 2020 HONORS APPLICATION.”

If you meet the qualifications and you follow all requirements, then you should be in a really good position for admittance into our Honors Program.  We look forward to reviewing your application.

If you have any reservations about attending Brookdale, our Honors Program will change your mind!  This unique program provides an enriched academic experience for a select cohort of highly motivated students. Through a curriculum that emphasizes global awareness, cultural experiences, and local engagement, Brookdale Honors students are challenged to connect their studies to the world beyond the campus.

By fostering collaborative learning and intellectual inquiry, Honors at Brookdale prepares students for transfer to competitive four-year colleges and universities, as well as for citizenship in our 21st-Century world.
