University Honors Program

First-Year Experience

Your success is very important to us! In order to help our new students get off to a good start and ease the transition to college, the University Honors Program has developed a series of Honors FYE programs.

University Honors FYE programs are designed to assist you in the transition to college and to Honors. Some are required of all incoming Honors freshmen (like Honors Orientation and the Gateway to University Honors course) and some are optional but highly encouraged (like the Welcome Retreat).

An integral part of the first year in the University Honors Program is developing a meaningful relationship with your honors advisor. UHP approaches advising from a coaching and teaching perspective. We want to collaborate and evaluate advisee progress in our program and at UC while providing the necessary academic and personal support.
