About the IU South Bend Honors Program

The IU South Bend Honors Program provides a special experience for highly motivated undergraduates who welcome intellectual engagement and are willing to meet high academic expectations. This is a dynamic program that can boost a student’s academic career and increase his or her enjoyment of the college experience.

Honors students work closely with faculty to pursue academic challenges through research, mentoring relationships, and specially designed honors courses that encourage them to strive for individual excellence.

Admission to the Honors Program is open to all qualified students. Additional social activities provide opportunities to know other students and faculty in the program. Honors courses are available in nearly every discipline and are listed at the beginning of the Schedule of Classes under Honors Program (HON).

Honors graduates receive an Honors Program certificate, an Honors graduation cord; success in the program will be noted on the transcript after completion of eight Honors Program courses, including HON-H 100 Introduction to Honors and an Honors Program senior project mentored by a faculty member (often combined with the senior capstone experience in the student’s chosen major).

Each semester an Honors student can also convert one regular course into an Honors course, upon the approval of the faculty member and the Director of the Honors Program. Several scholarships, available only to Honors Program participants, are awarded each year.
