Program Benefits

Honors Program graduates are recognized as scholars who have sought challenge and greater intensity in their learning experience.

Honors course experiences are highlighted on the student’s transcript. After a student completes the Honors Student Level (the freshman and sophomore program), or Honors Scholar Level (the junior and senior program), the achievement is noted on the transcript.  


Advantages of the Honors Program:

  • Small class size encourages and allows for interactive learning experiences and greater student-professor communication.

  • The pace of Honors courses is rigorous, stimulating and challenging.

  • The curriculum is interdisciplinary and research-oriented and prepares students for the rigors of graduate school or a demanding profession.

  • Tuition scholarships are available to especially qualified students.

  • Priority registration allows Honors students to register for the courses they want at the times they need.

  • The Honors Program offers a distinctive community for students to interact with each other and with faculty. Social events, conferences and special seminars add to the Honors Program experience.

  • Students who graduate from the Honors Program are designated Honors Scholars, a distinction which is reflected on their diplomas and transcripts.
