University Honors Program

The St. Thomas University Honors Program is designed to provide an intensive, academic and culturally stimulating opportunity for students to enhance their college academic experience.

Students who indicate an interest in the program will be considered by the Honors Program Admissions Committee on the basis of grades, test scores, class ranking, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation, a personal interview, and an essay on why the applicant wishes to be in the Honors Program. Honors Program students need to demonstrate a sincere interest in, and the necessary preparation for, a challenging program of college study. Only full-time, degree-seeking, undergraduate students are eligible to be considered for this Program.

Several merit scholarships are given each year to students selected to enter the Honors Program. Honors Program students are encouraged to apply for awards based on scholarship.
