The University of Louisville's Honors Program provides students with the chance to fly even higher. Some perks of the program include intimate class sizes (no more than 25 students), professional mentoring, study-abroad opportunities, suite-style housing and more.

Apply early. Know early.

UofL's new Honors Early Action application process allows Honors-accepted students to receive their Honors Program decision, living-learning community housing assignment and financial aid package earlier than ever.*  Honors Early Action is nonbinding – students receive an early response to their application but do not have to commit to the college until the decision deadline of May 1.
