Student Benefits

Beyond the obvious academic benefits, honors students enjoy a number of other unique incentives such as:

  • Advanced registration
  • Invitations to cultural and social events on and off campus
  • Conference Travel
  • Mentoring
  • Participation in the honors student organization
  • Service opportunities
  • Overload tuition waivers
  • Honors housing options

In addition to the academic challenge, participation in the Honors Program offers other advantages. Employers and graduate schools often consider students who take part in an honors program to be more motivated and able to take on more responsibility, which can increase employment opportunities and enhance graduate school admission chances. Special recognition is also given at Commencement to students who graduate with honors, and official notation of honors is printed on the transcript of grades sent to potential employers and graduate schools.
