About Us

The Honors College is a pathway through UNA that encourages students to pursue educational and experiential opportunities that will enable their success after college. Our graduates are achieving success in many ways including professional employment, graduate school, and individual entrepreneurship. The Honors College graduation rate is far above standard university completion rates, and 94% of our graduates are either working in their field or are enrolled in graduate school within a year of completing their degrees.

 The Honors College emphasizes student excellence in several areas: undergraduate research and performance, professional learning experiences like internships and co-ops, civic engagement, and experience with other cultures through study abroad and study away. Additional benefits include several types of Honors College scholarships, housing scholarships, one on one advising and mentorship, early registration, a living-learning community, and small class instruction.
