Honors Program


Elevate Your Academic Journey

Students participating in UVF’s Honors Program must take a minimum of 12 credits of honors-designated courses. These courses emphasize advanced writing, research, and critical thinking skills and provide a solid preparation for graduate study. Honors students are recognized at graduation and their completion of the Honors Program is noted on their official transcripts.

In addition, current UVF students can apply to be part of the program based on their university GPA. Those with a 3.75 GPA or above may apply to the program by contacting the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Students not enrolled in the Honors Program may be granted permission from the instructor to take certain honors-designated courses.
