University Honors Program

The University Honors Program at Idaho State University
offers enriched educational experiences for
bright, talented, and ambitious undergraduate students.

As the only Honors Degree granting institution in Idaho, the University Honors Program provides opportunities for broader, deeper, and more complex learning experiences for our students; but the program is bigger than academics alone. The UHP offers our students a living/learning community, leadership and civic engagement opportunities, individualized advising, undergraduate research, a group of committed scholars, and a community that values and recognizes the whole person.

The University Honors Program offers students the following upon acceptance:

    • Priority registration throughout the student's college career
    • Small class sizes throughout the Honors curriculum
    • Undergraduate research opportunities
    • Undergraduate thesis development, not offered elsewhere on campus
    • An active learning/living community on campus
    • Personal connections with Honors faculty to support student growth
    • Additional scholarships reserved for Honors students
    • Strong preparation for post-graduate studies
    • UHP Peer Mentors to aid in acclimation to college and the Honors Program
    • Numerous social and civic-engagement opportunities
