Welcome to UC and the University Honors Program! 

We're looking forward to helping you get started on an excellent fall semester. We focus on developing an individualized experience for every student in our program, which means your options to take advantage of our program are limitless.

Sometimes it's helpful to get inspired by hearing from some of our current students about their time at UC and in UHP. Attend a virtual session and join a conversation with them! A recording of the sessions will be made available later in the summer for those who cannot attend live.
