Honors and Scholars

University Honors Program

The University Honors Program (UHP) gathers the top undergraduates across every college at NC State and catalyzes them to participate in the research mission of the university. In this way, the UHP transforms undergraduates from being excellent students of their field to actually making their own discoveries that contribute to a field of research.

University Scholars Program

The University Scholars Program (USP) immediately connects its students to the campus and community by offering them high impact practices such as the Scholars Forum, outdoor and cultural exploration trips, and a diverse, energetic residential community in the Scholars Village.

These opportunities challenge University Scholars to develop as thinkers, citizens, and leaders and prepare them to achieve their personal and professional goals as they make their contributions to a democratic society.  Our students have responded to this challenge.  University Scholars are among the most active and accomplished students on campus.
