Are you a UC undergraduate student motivated to excel both in and out of the classroom? Are you looking to use your gifts and talents to explore your passions and make a difference on campus, in your local communities, or around the world? Do you want to be part of an innovative and inclusive community of driven student leaders with unique access to inspiring faculty and staff?
If you've answered yes to any of those questions, then the University Honors Program is the place for you. We offer a number of unique benefits and exclusive opportunities to enable students to maximize on their undergraduate experiences. By graduation, we help students become global citizen scholars who lead innovative efforts to solving the world's complex problems.
Applicants must have a cumulative university GPA of 3.2 or higher at the conclusion of fall semester. First year students without a GPA are eligible, because decisions won't be made until fall semester grades are finalized. Applicants must also be an University of Cincinnati undergraduate, baccalaureate student in order to be considered. All successful applicants will be required to complete five experiences by graduation.
While some opportunities in college prior to acceptance may count retroactively toward those five required experiences, at least one experience must be completed after conclusion of the Gateway to University Honors course. As a result, most students will apply during their first or second year, and students graduating in Spring 2020 or sooner will be ineligible.
