The UAH Honors College delivers an intimate, elite college experience at a public university price. We blend a traditional emphasis on arts and sciences, critical thinking, and communication skills with a practical, career-oriented education. We offer you small, inspiring classes that you will love and unparalleled research and career networking opportunities.

Honors Orientation

We will not offer a single, stand-alone priority Honors Orientation in May this year. Instead, we are happy to provide a special Honors session at each Orientation this summer. During this session, you will get Honors advising, find out about special Honors opportunities, and get to know your fellow Honors Students.

This new schedule means that all Honors Students will get the same orientation experience, and that students and families can more easily schedule an orientation that fits with their summer schedule and travel plans.

The Honors College program is compatible with any major or program of study and requires no extra coursework. You take Honors versions of courses you would already take. The courses aren't typically more work, they're just enriched. Student mentor programs, additional advising, priority registration, special activities, and other benefits are available. If you join the Honors College, you will be eligible for Honors Housing: live in a community of motivated Honors Students who enjoy Honors-dedicated activities, study rooms, and common spaces. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and see what life is like as an Honors Student at UAH.
