UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Hello Falcon Scholars & Honors Program Members,
Due to the State of Wisconsin’s “Stay at Home directive”, the Falcon Scholars & Honors Program staff are unable to work on campus. To that end,, the Falcon Scholars & Honors Program staff is no longer offering in-person visits. However, we're still working and available to answer all of your questions! Feel free to email us at any time Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CST.
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.
Students in the HP@UWRF enjoy the following benefits:
- A customized curriculum
- No added time to graduation or extra course work
- Priority registration
- Honors advising
- Use of an Honors interaction space/student lounge
- Connections with dedicated faculty
- Optional Honors housing available
- A notation on your transcript showing completion of the program
- And more!
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.
If you have any compliments, suggestions, information or concerns about the Honors Program, please let us know using this process.
If you need to report any of the following concerns, visit our Report It! website: sexual assault, violence or discrimination; bias or hate incidents; or general student concerns.
