The Honors College seeks to bring in students who have a demonstrated record of being highly motivated and high achieving in their work both inside and outside the classroom. Invitation to the Honors College is based on high school academic performance and seeks to create a diverse learning community. The college selects students from a variety of academic areas, from the humanities and sciences to environmental studies and education, from nursing and social work to business, in order to enhance this intentionally diverse community of scholars.
Students invited to join the Honors College are invited to Admitted Student Visit Honors College receptions. At these receptions invited students and families have the chance to meet with current Honors College students and faculty, learn more about the college and curriculum, and tour the residential hall in University Heights North. A list of spring 2020 Honors College receptions is available here.
