This page should provide the information you need for on-campus interviews as part of the application process for the Pittsburg State University Honors College. We feel this process will be extremely valuable in helping us select the very best students for our program.
Applications are due January 15, 2014. The committee will do a preliminary screening of all applicants and the top 48 will be invited to campus to participate in the interview process. These invitations will be extended the week of February 3rd, if not before. Interviews will be held on Sunday, February 9th. Students will be placed in two cohorts on that day, with the first group reporting to campus at 12:00 noon and the second group at 2:30pm.
After a brief introductory session, students will proceed to one of four interview rooms where they will meet with an interview team consisting of a member of the selection committee, a current student in the Honors College, and an alumnus of the Honors College. Each interview will last approximately 20 minutes and each applicant will be asked the same set of questions. Students will also have the opportunity to take a campus tour if they have not already done so. Following the interview process, the committee will meet and the top 36 students will receive invitations to become members of the PSU Honors College for the fall of 2014.
The on-campus interview is required for any student who desires to be a part of the Honors College program. For those individuals who live a great distance from PSU or who might have conflicts with making the trip to campus, a SKYPE room will be set up in order to conduct the interview. All skype connections must be video in format. It will be the applicant’s responsibility to have the necessary computer technology in their possession to facilitate the interview. All SKYPE interviews must be established well in advance of the interview day to ensure scheduling coordination. SKYPE can be downloaded free from the internet at http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/home.
