Honors Scholar Program

Honors Scholar Program – Exclusives & Opportunities

Research Assistantships:

Many students that participate in the Honors Scholar Program are offered the opportunity to research with professors that publish in their respective fields of study. This rare chance (which is usually only offered to graduate students at other institutions) is a perfect foundation for honors students who are planning to pursue a graduate degree.

Visiting Scholars:

The Honors Scholar Program regularly invites and sponsors renowned scholars to speak at High Point University on a variety of topics.

Scholarship for Rising Seniors:

The Honors Scholar Program awards one annual scholarship to the rising senior with the highest GPA in the program. The student must also exhibit extraordinary student leadership and be an active member of the Odyssey Club.

Priority Registration:

Honors Scholar Program students are provided the opportunity to select their courses during registration periods before non-honors students. This allows honors students the flexibility to take honors classes offered that particular semester and to create a academic schedule conducive to their learning style.

Extended Library Borrowing Privileges:

The High Point University library allows honors students enhanced borrowing privileges by allowing them access to non-circulated DVDs and extended check-out time for books.
