Purpose

The Honors Program at UWRF (HP@UWRF) provides an academic and social community for students who have outstanding records of academic achievement and who seize opportunities to pursue knowledge in a variety of subjects, interact socially with like-minded students, engage with their communities, and develop leadership skills and leadership potential.

Please note that the HP@UWRF is not like an AP or Honors program you find in high school where you complete extra work or take several additional classes to graduate with Honors.  At UWRF, we cater your Honors Program to your course requirements so that nearly all of the classes you take to complete the Honors Program count toward graduation.
