The central and foundational mission of the Honors Program is to better serve the educational needs of academically talented and highly motivated students at the University. The program encourages the participation of the broadest possible range of talented students. We serve students from most major ethnic groups and a variety of nations. We seek graduates from a variety of secondary schools including: graduates from small Christian academies, from large public high schools, and from elite private schools. Transfer students from two- and four- year colleges are welcomed.
The Honors Program will achieve its goals by providing students admitted to the program with: (1) a challenging, enriched, or interdisciplinary curricular module during their first two years, (2) a specially tailored honors course of study during their final two years, and (3) substantial scholarship support.
