• Applying to University Honors

    To achieve University Honors a student must propose a plan for achieving Undergraduate Honors to the director of Honors. In your proposal, please explain how you plan to achieve University Honors during your undergraduate career. Once your plan is revised as necessary, accepted, and approved, you will have access to a Google folder in which you will build your Honors portfolio. There, you can archive your proposal, submit and archive all your reflections, and check how many points you have earned.

    Graduating with University Honors requires you to fulfill requirements in four areas: academic excellence, undergraduate research, contributions to community, and development as a lifelong learner. Consult the section on Honors Requirements on the University Honors website concerning how to earn points in each area and the different types of Honors plans.
