Honors Program

The Young Harris College Honors Program celebrates the mission and values of Young Harris College and provides a distinctive learning environment for high-achieving students.  Students in the Honors Program enjoy priority registration and participate in multi-disciplinary, special-topics courses designed exclusively for the program, as well as Honors sections of some core courses.  Program participation also includes opportunities for academic scholarships, research support, and special opportunities for travel. Ultimately, students may earn an Honors Degree in their major program of study. 

Applications from incoming students are reviewed twice a year – the second week in January and the second week in April. Those accepted to the program in January will have the opportunity to compete for academic scholarships awarded on Honors Day, which will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017.
