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 do not need to wait until you receive admission notification from Samford before beginning your Fellows application. In fact, we encourage you to begin working on your Fellows application before receiving admission to Samford University. When you access the Fellows application for the first time, it will prompt you to register. Your log-in information will allow you to save the application without submitting it.  

After you have submitted your University Fellows application, your recommender will receive an email with a link for uploading the academic letter of recommendation. Your recommender can also upload the letter of recommendation using this link.

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