Find the right program for you!
Please take this opportunity to give to our students and the program!
With two pathways to honors, you can choose the program which best fits your educational journey.
Both the Honors Scholars Program (HSP) and the University Honors and Leadership (UHL) Program provide honors-level education and have unique benefits. As part of the UHL program, you will join a supportive cohort with other honors students and complete dedicated coursework together, while the Honors Scholars Program allows for more flexible learning options that you design around your passions and goals. Each program is aimed to help you achieve your educational goals by developing your talents and feeding your intellectual curiosity.
This flexible certificate program allows students to set their own honors goals and design their own plans. Students combine challenging coursework and co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that help them work toward their goals to earn a certificate in honors. Students work with an advisor to create this personalized certificate.
Complete coursework in small discussion-based seminars with other honors students that explore a range of special topics from a multidisciplinary perspective. Students in this highly selective program enter as part of a cohort and receive scholarship support, have access to priority class registration, and complete community service with their UHL peers.
