|University Undergraduate Advising Handbook|
The Schreyer Honors College is Penn State's University-wide undergraduate honors program. Baccalaureate degree-seeking students in all of Penn State's academic colleges and the Division of Undergraduate Studies may simultaneously be members of the Schreyer Honors College and pursue a broad set of opportunities for study, research, and scholarly exploration. The mission of the Schreyer Honors College is to promote academic excellence, a global perspective, leadership development and civic engagement.
Students typically can apply for admission to the Schreyer Honors College through one of two routes: 1.) a separate application prior to their first year or 2.) an application approved by their major department anytime after they complete one full semester at Penn State, provided they still have four or more semesters remaining.
Honors courses, designated with H, M, T, and U suffixes, are incorporated into requirements for students in the Schreyer Honors College. In the Schedule of Courses, honors courses offered in a semester or session can be identified by using Additional Search Criteria.
Senate Policy 65-00 and M-11 in the Academic Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual provides detailed information on Schreyer Honors College admission, retention, and graduation procedures.
Additional information as well as advising materials are available from the Schreyer Honors College.
The University may make changes in policies,
procedures, educational offerings, and requirements at any time. Please
consult a Penn State academic adviser for more detailed information.
