Enriching the academic experience of highly motivated students
The Honors Program at Illinois State challenges and engages academically talented students with a variety of unique experiences. Honor students enjoy:
- Individualized attention,
- Diverse academic and cultural experiences,
- Scholarly and civic engagement, and
- Strong connections with each other and faculty.
A special Honors seminar helps new freshmen adjust to college life inside and outside the classroom. You'll get connected with campus resources and meet other new honors students.
Special academic work leading to a student being designated as a Departmental Honors Scholar is available in all academic departments or schools in the University. Honors students have the opportunity to live and learn in a unique environment, the Honors House, where residents value diversity and commitment to education.
