Sellinger Scholars Program

The Sellinger Scholars Program has two primary components: curricular coursework and BH 199 Sellinger Scholars Experience. 

The required coursework offers increased rigor in the form of outside reading, discussion, and class presentations.  Program participants are pre-registered for Scholars course sections which are smaller in size and allow for greater interaction with faculty and classmates.  Coursework begins in the fall of the sophomore year and must be taken in sequence.  

The second component, BH 199 Sellinger Scholars Experience, offers students the opportunity to participate in professional, social, and community service activities in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.  This element is designed to enhance the academic experience and broaden the learning environment.

First-year students who have completed 15 credits in the fall semester applicable to a degree (excluding AP credits) with a minimum GPA of 3.5 and are majoring in Accounting or Business Administration will be invited to apply to the program.  Admission is competitive.
