Honors Program

The UW-River Falls Honors Program is designed to meet the educational needs of students who have an outstanding record of academic achievement and a true sense of intellectual adventure by allowing students to experience a variety of course types and educationally related experiences while gaining academic credit.

Honor students benefit from:

  • Priority registration
  • Honors advising
  • Community atmosphere
  • Connections with dedicated faculty
  • Collegiate Honors Society membership (student organization)
  • Use of honors students, staff and faculty interaction space

Students enrolled in the program may choose Honors sections of many general education classes, take Honors seminars, complete an Honors thesis/project, enroll in a service-learning experience for credit, and receive credits for participation in the intellectual and creative life of the UWRF community and elsewhere.  All of these experiences are gained while still keeping within the major and minor requirements of an Honors student's academic program.
