With Honors

Students in the Heritage University Honors Program undertake a rigorous direction of study that includes not only coursework and preparation for graduate school, but opportunities for development of cross-cultural awareness and perspectives in a variety of forums.

Do You Qualify?

If you’re interested in participating in our Heritage University Honors Program, you need a high school diploma and a minimum of a 3.3 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

To apply, please submit the supplemental applcation (in Word or PDF format) for the Honors Program, along with an application for general admission to Heritage University and supporting letters from two high school instructors nominating you for this program. The admission process also includes an interview with a panel of our faculty and staff.

During the first two years of the program, our honors students participate in a series of forums called the Honors Seminars. These courses provide the unique opportunity to interact with our faculty; scholars from other colleges and universities; and community leaders. Plus, they can also participate in cultural events.

During the junior and senior years, the focus turns to graduate education, with four one-credit courses in preparation for graduate and professional studies. These courses will focus on quantitative research, qualitative research, the process of applying for graduate school and graduate entrance examinations.

HU Student Speaker Series

We are proud to introduce our new program: Heritage University Student Speaker Series! During the year, students can hold a formal presentation on campus about any of the following:

  • Research they have or are currently conducting
  • Current participation in community service projects
  • Public service announcement on a topic they are passionate about

The purpose of this series is to showcase the incredible academic work of our students by offering a platform for them to share their endeavors. It also encourages other students to go above-and-beyond their classroom work and perform research or community service projects.
