University Scholars

Honors Program students are encouraged to seek admission to the University Scholars Program if they plan to pursue a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in the same academic discipline.  Pursuing this option will streamline the student’s educational pathway, saving both time and money.  Additionally, graduate courses completed through the University Scholars Program can count toward Honors Program requirements.
