Honor Roll—National Award?

Hi everyone! I got on the honor roll at my school and was wondering if it's considered a national award? If so, how can I include this on my college application?

Hi there! Congratulations on making the honor roll at your school. While the honor roll is an impressive achievement, it is not considered a national award. National awards involve competition or recognition on a bigger scale, such as winning a prestigious national scholarship, placing in a national competition, or receiving recognition from a national organization.

Despite not being a national award, your honor roll achievement is still noteworthy and should be included in your college application. To include it, you can list it under the "Awards and Honors" section or the "Education" section on the Common Application. When describing it, make sure to mention the criteria for achieving the honor roll at your school, such as maintaining a certain GPA or earning a specific number of A's.

Remember, colleges appreciate students who have excelled academically and demonstrated consistency in their performance. The honor roll will contribute to showcasing your dedication and commitment to your studies, even if it is not a national award. Good luck with your college applications!
