The University Honors Program supports Eastern’s liberal arts mission by:

  • Offering academically talented students an avenue to demonstrate competencies characteristic of liberally educated students
  • Contributing to the enrichment of Eastern’s intellectual climate
  • Providing standards, curricula and learning approaches that serve as model educational practices at the University

The Honors Program is academically challenging and prepares graduates to become leaders in their communities, exhibiting the highest standards of ethical and intellectual integrity.

Students are accepted into the Honors Program each fall semester; the Honors application will be linked here when it opens on November 1, 2020, and must be completed by the deadline of February 1, 2021. In the meantime, you may learn more about the program by navigating the pages on this site. Please note that to be reviewed for admission, students must submit: their Honors application (including their Honors essay) and seek two recommendation letters from teachers that address the applicant’s academic experience and potential for success in Eastern’s rigorous University Honors Program.

Application instructions for current Eastern freshmen wishing to enter the Honors Program at the start of their sophomore year are posted on this page at the beginning of each spring semester. Please check back for updates.
