When to Join the Honors Program

The earlier the better! We encourage students to enroll in Pre-Honors and take the introductory courses their freshman year. Since many of the Honors course requirements also fill GE requirements, joining early helps you make the most of your experience right from the outset of your college career. We also welcome students after their first year too. Our advisors are happy to meet with students anytime to create a plan toward graduation through the Honors Program!
