Registration and Records

The Honors Program at UWF is designed to provide creative ways for students to explore their academic talents. Students admitted to the Program are required to enroll in honors courses within major disciplines. Faculty from across UWF?s three colleges work with Honors students, affording them opportunities to contribute to serious research, scholarship, and creative productions under the supervision of recognized experts in a variety of fields.

To qualify for UWF?s Honors Program, entering high school graduates (or early admitted and dual enrolled students) must meet two of the following entrance requirements: (1) rank in the top 10 percent of their high school graduating class or have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 or higher; and (2) have an ACT composite score of 26 or higher or a combined score of 1170 or higher on the SAT. Transfer students must have a minimum transfer GPA of 3.25 and submit a letter of recommendation from their previous institution?s Honor Director or faculty member.

Some benefits for participation in the Program include early registration, small classes (average of 15 students), Honors Seminar Series, social and cultural activities, a certificate of completion when Program requirements are met, annotation on the UWF transcript of Honors courses taken, participation in the Honors Commencement Ceremony for recognition of Program graduates, and individual recognition by UWF?s President during Commencement exercises.

Interested students should contact the Honors Office for more information.
