Honors Courses

Honors students enjoy University-Level Priority Scheduling, making them among the first to schedule courses each semester. This scheduling privilege enables students to meet the expectations and requirements of the Honors Program, including a challenging curriculum, maintenance of a minimum GPA of 3.4 or 3.5, and completion of specific College Honors requirements.

Honors Residence Halls

The honors residential learning community gives students a peer network of high achieving students who are successful in balancing involvement in academic and co-curricular activities.

Scholars Programs

Live and learn with other students who share similar interests. Each of the 16 Scholars programs is centered around a theme or area of study and is open to all students regardless of major. Take a closer look here

Scholars Residence Halls

As a Scholars student you will be required to live in the Scholars residence hall with the Scholars students in your particular program during your first year unless you are a commuting Central Ohio resident. For more information, click here.
