Our experience has shown us that students who enter the Program for the wrong reasons either end up leaving or completing it with less satisfaction than anticipated. It is critical, then, that students, parents, teachers, and counselors consider the values and goals of the UW Honors Program before applying. Students who commit to our broader concept of a college education report that they have been transformed by the experience. It is this quality that makes our Program truly distinctive.

There is no additional fee to apply to the UW Honors Program.

UW Honors, which you're applying to in general (departmental you'd be applying through the department and I suspect you'd actually know about it before applying), looks to find students who can combine two fields, such as medicine and journalism, into a career path or similar. Their key word is 'interdisciplinary,' which means taking two more more disciplines and making magic out of it.All students in the must complete departmental honors in addition to Honors Program requirements to graduate "with College Honors." Students who complete departmental honors (and are not in the UW Honors Program) graduate "with Distinction."Some programs confer honors within their program, discipline or College. These honors are recognized every April at the UW Oshkosh Honors and Awards ceremony and are published in the official program of this ceremony. Please check with your program or College to find out if they confer honors and the requirements for such honors. It is acceptable at the university commencement ceremony for graduate students to wear the cords or stoles of their discipline's respective honor society.The UW Academy has a unique relationship with the UW Honors Program, which provides three distinct Honors degree options for UW — and Academy — students. We encourage all students to determine for themselves which, if any, Honors track is the best “fit” for them and their interests, and to make the decision to apply with a full understanding of their options. Both Robinson Center and Honors Program advisers are available to help students navigate these choices.The event, hosted by UW Honors Program, was a year in the making — after last year's HONORS 100 students (mostly incoming freshmen) voiced a desire to engage with the big questions they care about.The event, hosted by UW Honors Program, was a year in the making — after last year's HONORS 100 students (mostly incoming freshmen) voiced a desire to engage with the big questions they care about.

UW Honors is where future doctors and diplomats discuss anthropology and architecture while peering at Orca whales through a telescope.
