Your community:

The Honors College at Auburn University is designed to provide a select cohort of high-ability students a means to experience, explore, engage, and elevate their academic dreams through the diverse opportunities found at a research university like Auburn University. With four types of graduation distinctions, and many of the amenities and advantages typically limited to small colleges, Honors students engage in an academically challenging set of courses and programs meant to provide a deeper and more complex understanding of the class material.

Beginning with your second semester in the college, Honors students are given priority at registration to ensure timely progress through the Honors curriculum. Participation in the Honors Freshmen Exploration and Lyceum courses offers you a unique opportunity to focus on methods of dealing with issues of current importance or on cutting edge research on campus. As an ongoing service, Honors students are provided assistance in identifying and applying for the Rhodes, Marshall, Goldwater, Truman, and other prestigious scholarships.
