University Honors Program

The Honors Program at UofL provides students with the best of both worlds in terms of college experience: the intimacy of a small college combined with the vast resources of a national research institution. With smaller classes that are more focused on reading, writing, and discussion, students benefit from greater academic rigor alongside more personalized support.

Program eligibility guidelines:

If you are a first-time freshman entering UofL in the fall:

  • 28 ACT/1250 SAT (CR + M) and a 3.5 GPA
  • If you meet these requirements, you will be contacted by the University Honors Program with an application. This occurs once you have been admitted to the University of Louisville. You will then be accepted automatically upon submission of a completed application.
