The Honors Program has created a page dedicated to COVID-19 Updates & Policies. In addition, students can partake in the Honors Summer 2020 Project to gain up to 3 experiential learning credits from home in response to the pandemic. This opportunity is open to all students (except incoming students). 


Ready for Primetime? 

Honors Primetime is a three-and-a-half day workshop for incoming first-year honors students. Workshops of about twenty students engage in hands-on learning with exceptional UI faculty and staff, and successful completion earns 1 semester hour of honors credit. Registration opens July 13th. Early move-in through Housing is August 15th & 16th. 




Get to know staff and fellow students of the Honors Program by visiting our Orientation page. You can visit our Orientation Guide which will help you on your journey as an incoming student. The guide also serves as an excellent resource for current students. Have questions? We're here to help!
