And most importantly, the Honors College is here for YOU: with dedicated staff and faculty eager to support your development from your first semester to graduation, you’ll find yourself growing in unexpected ways. The Honors College has a program for you no matter where you are in your educational journey.
Students joining the Lloyd International Honors College through either the International Honors Program or the Disciplinary Honors Program receive special benefits.
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.
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.
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.

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!
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.
