Our Honors community stands out for being smaller and more intimate than most. You'll find lifelong friends and colleagues while doing important work both in and outside the classroom.
The Honors College Experience
RISE to the IUPUI challenge
When you RISE to the IUPUI Challenge, you're enhancing what happens in the classroom, then reflecting on what you learned. Honors Scholars receive academic credit by engaging on this level, and all RISE courses are documented on your transcript.
Each undergraduate student is challenged to include two of the four RISE experiences—research, international experience, service learning, and experiential learning—into their degree programs. We expect Honors Scholars to do them all.
A home that honors your values
Honors scholars have the option to live together in one of two residential communities that are dedicated to the Honors lifestyle. You'll share an important bond you won't find anywhere else on campus, and you'll have a quiet place to focus on academics.
