University Honors Program accepting applications for fall 2010 admission

The University Honors Program application for post-freshman admission in fall 2010 is now available online.

The University Honors Program (UHP) provides highly qualified and motivated students with a rigorous and enhanced learning experience that crosses academic boundaries. The enriched educational opportunities for honors students include special honors courses and seminars, and an array of co-curricular opportunities. Early in their academic careers, honors students--with the guidance of faculty members--are encouraged to begin engagement in laboratory or scholarly research, works of creative expression, and internships appropriate to their fields of study.

To graduate with Latin Honors (cum laude, magna cum laude or summa cum laude), students must be admitted to the University Honors Program and complete the honors degree requirements. These requirements include a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA in the student's last 60 graded UMTC credits and completion of required honors experiences, including a written honors thesis based on the results of involvement in research or other scholarly/creative endeavor under the guidance of a faculty mentor.

Applicants to the University Honors Program must have:
1) a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5
2) an academic record with strong performance in major and prerequisite coursework
3) at least 4 semesters remaining until graduation as of Fall 2010

Admission to UHP is competitive and is based on a comprehensive review of the student's application. Informational sessions for interested students will be held the first two weeks of December. All interested students are strongly encouraged to attend one of these sessions. Check the UHP website for the days, times, and locations of the informational sessions and to learn more about UHP.

The priority application deadline is January 5, 2010.
Full consideration will be given to all complete applications received by the priority deadline. Applicants will be notified of the decision on their application by March 1, 2010.
