The Honors Program recognizes exceptional academic achievement. The courses, contracts, conferences, and sponsored activities will enhance both your academic and social experiences on campus.
You will join a community of like-minded students to seek academic, research, and social opportunities outside the classroom. You will submit papers, posters, and roundtable topic proposals to present your work at regional and national conferences where you’ll engage with Honors students from across the nation.
Invitation to join the Honors Program is offered at the time of admission. Selection is based on high school academic performance and evidence of potential for academic excellence. You may also receive an invitation to join the program upon completion of one semester with a cumulative grade point average of 3.40 or higher.
