Are you looking for a new challenge? If so, we have developed an honors program that gives you the opportunity to turn almost any course into an honors course. An honors option course is designed by incorporating honors elements into a regular, non-honors course so that students who have been accepted into the honors program can earn honors credit for completing that course.

The Honors Program at LSUA admits students as new freshmen, as well as current and transfer students. Admission to the Honors Program is designed to attract a broad range of academically talented students with the potential for academic excellence and leadership.

There are many benefits to joining our honors family. Some of the benefits are:

  • The opportunity to earn a medallion to wear at graduation
  • Recognition at graduation
  • Faculty advice on graduate school application and prep
  • Special speakers and lecturers
  • Cultural activities
  • Research opportunities
  • Opportunities to publish research in undergraduate journals and present work at conferences
  • Priority registration
  • Guidance in competing for national scholarships/ fellowships/ conferences
  • Private reception with members of administration, including the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, department chairs, and course instructors participating in the program
  • Service opportunities
