Honors Programs

Students in honors programs have access to honors housing, enrichment activities, special events and speakers, courses with top faculty, scholarships, and leadership opportunities. Some programs sponsor retreats, offer research funding, or give priority registration. Departmental honors are noted on the students' transcript. University Honors is also noted on the transcript.

The University Honors Program in the Honors College accepts qualified students with any major. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary coursework, community service, and diverse cultural experiences. Students have the option of earning dual honors in both UHP and a program in another college or department.

Honors programs also are available in the following colleges and departments. Others are currently in development. You can also search by your major(s).

The Honors College provides this list of honors societies and their campus contact information solely as a service to high achieving students. We do not recommend particular honors societies and urge students to carefully research any honors society before joining.
