Honors College Benefits


Students joining the Lloyd International Honors College through either the International Honors Program or the Disciplinary Honors Program receive special benefits.

Recognition

Graduating Honors students are recognized at the annual Honors Banquet, which takes place every spring. An Honors student's official University transcript includes a mark of merit and, for those who have completed Disciplinary Honors, the title of his or her Senior Honors Thesis. This official recognition grants students a competitive edge in applying for graduate or professional school and signals to prospective employers the graduate's interpersonal, intellectual, and communication skills.


Honors Priority Registration

All Honors College students have the benefit of registering prior to non-Honors students of similar academic rank (by credit hours). In addition, seats in 100-level Honors classes are held for only our incoming International Honors freshman class.


Honors Scholarships

The Honors College awards the Katherine Smith Reynolds Scholarship and the Lena Anne Gordon Scholarship to incoming first-year students. Current students may be eligible for the Lichtin Family Scholarship, the Scurry Family Scholarship, the Joe and Jeannie Daniels Felts Scholarship, and the Fran and Glenn Ross Scholarship.


Housing

Honors students may choose from three different Honors residences. These environments allow students to integrate their academic and social life, and in doing so challenge and support them as they grow as scholars, citizens, and human beings. Please visit our Housing page for more information!


Honors Programming, Events, and Leadership Opportunities

The Honors College provides ample opportunities for student development and engagement outside the classroom throughout the academic year. The Honors College schedules a full slate of programs that address academic interests, developmental needs, and recognition of excellence. The Honors College also offers students several opportunities to grow as leaders throughout their time at UNCG.


Honors Student-Designed Interdisciplinary Program

For students admitted to Lloyd International Honors College and with a proven record of academic achievement, the SDIP, UNCG's new student-designed interdisciplinary program, offers a challenging yet versatile approach to earning your undergraduate degree. Students pursuing the SDIP will be given priority consideration for scholarships administered by the Dean's Office in the College of Arts and Sciences.
