What is Honors?
Honors is about enriched academic experiences, personal growth through leadership and service, and fellowship that helps you develop lifelong relationships and talents.
Message from Director
The RIT Honors Program is an inclusive community of curious and creative people from across the university who see opportunity in challenge, and recognize that excellence comes from hard work. We seek meaningful experiences, we support each other as we strive to live into our potential, and we believe that, together, we can change the world for the better.
Director, Honors Program
Honors students are among the top students, not just at RIT, but also around the country. Honors students regularly earn some of the top awards at RIT and in their fields, and they are internationally recognized for their work and studies.
Invitations to newly admitted students are handled by the Undergraduate Admissions Office. Current RIT students may be eligible to apply for admission to the Honors Program through the Internal Admission process, which happens early in the spring semester.
The Honors Newsletter, written by students for students, features surveys, event write-ups, puzzles, and general informational articles.
