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 28

• A combined verbal and quantitative SAT score of 1310

Going Places

Our vision is that every Honors scholar should be able to study for a semester abroad or go on a faculty-led international course at least once. We live in a global community; recognizing this and being part of that community are fundamental first steps to full engagement. We work with our Study Abroad Office to facilitate semesters abroad or develop courses, with no fewer than 9 being led from Honors in 2019. Nothing opens your mind like an international experience!
