Prospective Students

What is the Honors College?

Welcome to the Prospective Students section of the MUHC website! Here you will find information about the College, and the selection process for both incoming first-year students and currently enrolled or transfer students.

  • In 2023, 108 new students were enrolled in the Honors College.
  • The current total student enrollment in the Honors College is around 300 students.
  • We find that many of the students enrolled in the Honors College are looking for a program that encourages independent thought and research in a smaller academic environment. That's why we strive to keep classes at or under 25 students.

The University Honors College is specially designed to provide a challenging and enriching education for talented and motivated students. Students who have been accepted into the Honors College are encouraged to raise their academic and professional sights beyond what they have imagined. The Honors College provides academic guidance and preparation, which will prepare students to prosper in graduate/professional schools or in the business world.
