Apply to Honors

The University Honors Program values diversity and seeks students who bring a wide range of perspectives, experiences, and skills to our program. Applications are open for students on any USU campus.

Honors is looking for exceptional students who are...

  • CURIOUS and passionate about changing the world
  • CREATIVE and thoughtful in problem-solving
  • COURAGEOUS and resilient when challenged
  • CONNECTED and engaged with their communities 

Honors students bring various interests and talents to our community, but they all share a passion for taking learning beyond the classroom. While we do pay attention to grades (most students enter with a 3.5 GPA), our essay-based application gives all applicants the opportunity to show us more than grades: we are equally interested in what our students care about and how they will bring that passion into our community. 

Apply now – we dare you!
