Early registration

Students in the Honors College register for classes early each semester, which offers them a better chance to secure seats in popular courses at preferred times.

Study abroad

Honors students have the opportunity to take an Honors class in another country during a three-week period after the regular semester.

Small classes

Enrollment capacities in each Honors class are set between fifteen and twenty-four, which allows for significant discussion and interaction between professors and students.

Innovative classes
