Current UNCG Honors Students

Current students at UNCG seeking to enter the Honors College are highly encouraged to consider applying to the Disciplinary Honors Program!

Disciplinary Honors allows students to complete Honors coursework in their majors, culminating with a Senior Honors Thesis directed by a faculty mentor. Honors students also have access to special benefits: priority registration, eligibility for Honors housing, access to Honors advising, eligibility for Honors scholarships, and a wealth of programming and events designed for Honors students. Admission to Disciplinary Honors requires a minimum cumulative UNCG GPA of 3.30 to 3.50, depending on your major. Visit the Disciplinary Honors Admissions page to apply!

If you are currently a traditional first-year student in your first or second semester at UNCG, and you have not attended another college or university, you may apply for a few select spots in the International Honors Program starting in the fall of your sophomore year. The International Honors Program does not accept students for spring semesters.

To be eligible for the International Honors Program, you must have at least a 3.3 cumulative UNCG GPA at the end of your first year at UNCG, and have no more than two semesters of experience at any college or university

To apply, you must first meet with Senior Academic Advisor Chris Kirkman (cjkirkma@uncg.edu), who will review the program requirements with you and make sure International Honors fits into your graduation plan. He will then give you access to the online application. Applicants will be notified of their status after final grades for the spring semester are submitted. Questions about the application timeline or process? Visit the International Honors Program Admissions page for information about applying to join the International Honors Program in the Fall semester.
