Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I have to be in the Honors Program to graduate with honors?
Q: Do I have to live in Hume Hall if I am in the Honors Program?
Q: Are there extra fees associated with the Honors Program?
Q: Do Honors students receive early registration?
Q: Are UF Innovation Academy students eligible to participate in the Honors Program?
Q: Are transfer students eligible for admission to the Honors Program?


Q: Do I have to be in the Honors Program to graduate with honors?
A:
  No.  Participation in the Honors Program is completely independent of graduating with honors.  Each college at UF sets its own requirements for graduating cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude.  Every student at the university is eligible to graduate with honors.

Q: Do I have to live in Hume Hall if I am in the Honors Program?
A:
  No.   The Honors Residential College at Hume Hall offers a unique living experience for our students, but it is not a requirement for membership in the program.  Many of our students choose to live in other residence halls on campus during their first year at UF.  Consider attending one of our Afternoons with Honors programs to see Hume for yourself. 

Q: Are there extra fees associated with the Honors Program?
A:
No.  Students do pay one-time membership dues of $60 to the Student Honors Organization (SHO) before their first year at UF, but there are no other fees charged for the program.  These dues pay for activities organized by SHO throughout the year and for the t-shirt that students receive during Preview.

Q: Do Honors students receive early registration?
A:
Yes, on a limited basis.  When registering for classes in the second semester of their first year and for classes in their second year, students who remain in good standing with the program are eligible to register during the early registration period for up to 10 credit hours of courses.  Please note that some departments limit early registration for certain courses so that not every course will necessarily be available.  Early registration does not apply during Preview (it is technically impossible).

Q: Are UF Innovation Academy students eligible to participate in the Honors Program?
A:
Yes.  Students who have been admitted to the Innovation Academy may apply to the Honors Program during our regular application period.  This is the only opportunity IA students have to apply; that is, there is no lateral admissions process for IA students.  Please note that there are no Honors courses during summer sessions, so IA students will need to be conscientious and creative about meeting the Honors program requirements.

Q: Are transfer students eligible for admission to the Honors Program?
A:
No. Students who are admitted to UF as transfer students are not eligible for admission to the Honors Program. This does not mean however that transfer students cannot graduate with honors. Those distinctions are independent of the Honors Program and are determined by the individual colleges and departments. For more information on graduating with honors, click here.
