Lower Division Honors Program

The Lower Division Honors Program (also known as the Honors Interdisciplinary Program or HIP) is designed for students entering UNC as freshmen with advanced achievement levels and for those who once on campus find their learning niche and want to experience an Honors lower division education.

The program curriculum is based on students completing interdisciplinary seminars and courses in the Honors Connection series and in the award-winning Life of the Mind liberal arts core course series.

Students completing the Lower Division Honors Program receive a certificate of honors distinction, generally earned at the end of their sophomore year.
