University of Wyoming Honors College

The Honors College is 100% about the students — a truly exceptional group of people who make a difference at UW and in the world. Honors scholars are intellectually curious students from all majors who are creative, inspired by diverse ideas, and seek a greater understanding of their place in society.

Combine excellent students with superb faculty in small classes and the result is an invigorating and highly effective learning environment. Honors faculty talk with students, not at them. Honors students thrive in this stimulating environment, develop lasting friendships, and succeed in their academic and professional pursuits.

Applicants must meet at least one of the following criteria:

• A composite ACT score of 27

• A combined verbal and quantitative SAT score of 1310

Honors in the News

Tyler Julian


My name is Tyler Truman Julian, a recent graduate of the University of Wyoming's Honors Program, and while I was born and raised in Wyoming and my heart is still there, I currently find myself on the northern edge of the Chihuahua Desert in an MFA program at New Mexico State University. About a year and a half ago, before getting into this graduate program, I did not quite know where life would take me, and as I struggled with that question, I began to revise and edit my senior Honors project, a short collection of poetry about memory and loss and home that I had initially put together with Dr. Erin Abraham's guidance. Over the course of several intense months of revision, that piece turned into the book, Wyoming: The Next Question to Ask (to Answer), which is now on sale from Finishing Line Press. Without the support of the Honors Program (and many others), this book would never have come to be. The book is available for purchase online at

Charles Johnson

My name is Charles Johnson and I am a senior in the Honors Program. This last fall I was in the University's production The Nutcracker as the Nutcracker Prince. I also worked on some of the costumes for the show at the University's costume shop. With many hours of rehearsal and sewing this was an experience I will never forget. Through the last three years the professors of the Honors college have taught me nothing is impossible and anything is achievable. Without their support I definitely wouldn't be the student and person I am today.
