Don't Let Your Students Miss Out on Honors Tuition Waivers
The UND Honors Program combines the love of learning with the desire to positively impact the world and is the perfect fit for highly motivated students. The best and brightest students are accepted to Honors each year, with an average high school GPA of 3.86 and an average ACT score of 28.4 of students in the program.
With UND Honors, students are part of a program that emphasizes a close-knit community, active learning and preparation for the future.
- Close-knit community: With a maximum class size of only 18, students in the Honors program get to know their professors and peers through intimate class settings. 60% of students live in the Honors Living & Learning Community, giving them a built-in community of peers to work, play and learn with.
- Active learning: Conspiracy Theory in America, Fairy Tales & Folklore and Drugs & Addiction are just a few Honors classes that challenge students with hands-on learning and thought-provoking discussions. The program also offers learning experiences outside the classroom through service learning in the community and travel opportunities.
- Preparing for the future: The Honors Program’s final project, a senior thesis, prepares students for the work expected in graduate, law or medical school. UND Honors alumni have gone on to excellent graduate programs, the Peace Corps, Americorps and professional and public service leadership positions.
Application Deadline and Tuition Waiver
The priority deadline for students to apply to the Honors Program for the Fall 2016 semester is March 1. Students who apply by this deadline will be considered for a limited number of partial tuition waivers that will be awarded to top applicants. These waivers are worth $1,000 per year for up to four years. Annual renewal criteria apply, including maintaining a 3.2 GPA and completing at least one Honors class per semester.
There is no separate application process for these tuition waivers; all students who applied and have been admitted to the Honors Program will be put under review. Waivers are limited, so students are encouraged to apply early.
