Honors Privileges

Students in the Honors Program enjoy other significant privileges, which are geared toward creating an academic environment that supports their dedication to excellence. Privileges include:

  • Six Free Tuition Credits per Academic Year – These credits may be taken in the winter or summer sessions or as a sixth course during the fall and spring semesters. These free courses can facilitate double majors, accelerate graduation, or broaden the educational experience with no financial burden.
  • Priority Course Registration – The ability to register early ensures students the ability to receive their preferred courses.

  • American Express Grant Fund – Through the fund, students have the opportunity to apply for funding to support a wide range of academic pursuits.
