Welcome to University Honors Program

The North Carolina A&T State University Honors Program allows motivated and gifted learners in any major to truly excel and make the most of their undergraduate education.

In-school benefits of the Honors Program include:

  • Honors Lecture Series
  • Opportunity for Travel to and Participation in conferences
  • Leadership Development and Training activities
  • Honors Housing and Living Learning Community
  • Early Registration
  • Intensive Scholarship, Fellowship, and Professional Development

News and Updates



The Honors Program Office will have extended hours this academic year.  The office will be open until 6:30p.m. Monday through Thursday. 

If you are graduating this December, please come by the Honors Program Office to inquire about honors cords as well as ALD cords and stoles.

Maintaining Honors Eligibility

Honors students, to remain eligible,must maintain a 3.5 GPA, attend two Lectures and Cultural Events per semester and do 10 hours of community service per semester.  Failure to maintain these standards can result in loss of Honors eligibility.  Any student that drops below a 3.5 goes on Honors Probation for a semester.  If at the end of that probationary semester the student's GPA remains below a 3.5, the student is no longer in the program. Once a cumulative 3.5 GPA is again obtained, the student may seek re-admittance to the program.

Students that complete the University Honors Program requirements will be recognized at our annual Honors Graduation banquet, and receive notification on their transcript.
