The best rise to the top of the hill. Will you be among them?

In its latest edition, A Review of Fifty Public University Honors Programs awarded KU's University Honors Program a 5 out of 5 ranking, making us 1 of only 7 honors programs nationwide to receive a perfect score.

Why? Because our faculty and staff are dedicated to helping exceptional students launch extraordinary lives.

To this end, we challenge our students through exceptional courses, guide them through personalized advising, and introduce them to an intellectual community second to none. This is why our students study abroad, undertake graduate-level research, and work within their professional field far more, and far earlier, than their peers.

See how far University Honors can take you. Apply now.
