Applications from current UC students who would like to transition into the University Honors Program are accepted annually in the spring semester.
Applicants must have a cumulative university GPA of 3.4 or above and expect to earn at least 24 semester hours of college credit (by the end of spring semester 2013) in order to be considered for admission to University Honors.
Admission is extremely competitive. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the University Honors Program. In the 2013 process, we had 179 applications for 40 spaces.
The 2013 application deadline was Friday, February 15, 2013. Applications were reviewed after the deadline date. Notifications for the 2012-13 process were sent to applicants on or around March 4, 2013.
Please follow these four steps to complete an application:

A mandatory orientation meeting will be convened on Saturday, March 9, 2013, 9 AM to 1 PM (meeting location to be determined). This meeting will cover the following topics:
Students who are admitted to University Honors will be required to take the Gateway to University Honors class (HNRS1010) during the fall 2013 semester.
If students forsee potential conflicts to take the course fall 2013 (e.g., due to co-op or internship), we will be offering a SPRING 2013 flex course that will meet during the SPRING 2013 SEMESTER, begininng on Thursday, March 7. The flex course will meet every Thursday, 3:35 -5:45 PM. Location TBD. Space for this course is limited. If invited transition students take the course during the spring 2013 semester, then they do not have to take the Gateway couse during fall 2013.
Gateway to University Honors (HNRS1010) does NOT carry a fee. If the student is taking the maximum number of credit hours (18) as a full-time student, s/he can still enroll in the class without being charged additional tuition fees. Students must receive authorization from their college academic advisor to register for the 19th credit hour.
UC students with a cumulative GPA equal to or greater than a 3.4 are eligible to enroll in honors seminars. Students should contact University Honors for permission to enroll. If the seminar has a travel abroad component, students must also complete the required application and/or meet with the instructor. Incoming first-year students without an established UC GPA are not eligible to enroll in fall semester seminars.
