Apply to Honors: May 1 Deadline
After you're admitted to UND, apply to the Honors Program by the May 1 deadline.
You'll now be able to choose from two distinct tracks that give more flexibility to pursue what you're passionate about. The two tracks focus on:
- Honors Research Scholars: This track provides you with a broad-based liberal arts education and opportunities to engage in research and creative activity. Choose this track if you want to dig deeper into your field of study.
- Honors Leaders in Action: In addition to a liberal arts education, this track provides you more hands-on service learning experiences, the ability to make connections with university and community leaders, and opportunities for reflective leadership in areas including politics, public service, management, business/entrepreneurship, and non-profit organizations.
New Student Honors Application
You must be admitted to UND before applying to the Honors program. Once you're admitted, if prompted, please fill out the Honors Program application form. You'll be asked to write an essay to complete your Honors application. We'll consider the entirety of your application, so please take time to a craft thoughtful, well-written response.
Current UND or Transfer Student Honors Application
Honors is happy to have students who enter our program with post-high school college experience, either from UND or another institution. We can work with you individually to help you participate in the Honors Program. We are a flexible, student-centered program, and we can make accommodations to compensate for your previous college coursework.
If you're ready to apply, please fill out the Honors Program application form. Honors students are expected to maintain a 3.2 GPA once enrolled in Honors, and we prefer to see students doing similar work before they join.
