From the Director

Welcome to the University Honors Program at the University of Northern Iowa!

The University Honors Program strives to provide outstanding educational, social, and leadership opportunities for talented and motivated students.  Honors students should be prepared to make the most of their education through participation in University Honors.  Some of the benefits of honors participation are:

  • Access to special honors sections of university courses with small class sizes that allow for discussion and interaction between honors students and faculty.

  • Involvement in extra and co-curricular activities that encourage both social interaction and intellectual development.

  • Leadership opportunities through the Honors Student Advisory Board (HSAB).

  • Recognition of efforts through the notation of individual honors courses on transcripts and the designation of graduation with University Honors or University Honors with Distinction for students who fulfill all honors requirements prior to graduation. 

Take this opportunity to tour our site to learn more about the Honors Program at UNI.  The site gives specific information on admission requirements, courses, program requirements, and much more.  Let us show you how the University Honors Program can enhance your educational experience!
