Welcome to the University Honors Program
Raise Your Expectations
From Our Students
Have you set the highest expectations for yourself and your academic career? The University Honors Program is designed to help foster those expectations by providing academically outstanding students enriched course and research experiences, extra faculty attention, a community of intellectually-challenging peers and appropriate recognition for accepting the challenge to make the most of their undergraduate education.
Entering freshmen should have a 3.5 GPA and either be in the top 10 percent of their high school class or have scored a minimum ACT of 27 (composite) or SAT of 1170 (critical reading and math). - Students already enrolled at the university or transferring from another college should have a minimum 3.25 GPA.
- Access to honors courses, seminars, research opportunities, personalized advising and other enriched learning experiences inside and outside the classroom.
- Opportunities to reside in the Honors Residence Hall, take part in honors governance through the Student Honors Council and participate in a rich variety of social, cultural and service activities.
- Eligibility for scholarships available only to honors students, travel and research stipends and extended library check-out privileges.
- Recognition at commencement, on transcripts and on the university diploma as a graduate of the University Honors Program.
The University Honors Program offers students both the resources of a comprehensive university and the individual attention traditionally associated with a small college while involving them in learning, heightening their critical awareness and encouraging their independent thinking and research.
