Apply to Honors as a First-Year Student

The priority deadline for applications for the 2019-2020 school year was January 10, 2019.

APPLICATIONS for the Fall 2019 Class are CLOSED.

Due to an unprecedented volume of high-quality applicants, Honors is no longer accepting applications for this year's incoming class. Please contact or (435) 797-2715 if you have any questions. 


The University Honors Program values diversity and seeks students who bring a wide variety of perspectives, experiences, and skills to our incoming class. We want to know both that you are curious and passionate about your own interests and that you want to engage with students and faculty from different disciplines in the Honors Program.

If you're interested in becoming part of the Honors program, please visit our application page for Existing USU students and Transfer students and consider applying after you have completed at least one semester and formed mentoring relationships with one or more faculty members who may serve as a reference for your application.
