Edinboro University Honors Program
Dr. Roger Solberg
Honors students in good standing are given preferential scheduling. This virtually assures the student the first choice of courses in the University schedule of classes.
Honors Program students may elect to live in this on-campus residence environment, featuring programs tailored to their interests. The floor is located on the 3rd floor of Earp Hall. Learn more about the Honors Living Learning floor.
Honors students may check out materials for up to eight weeks, with the opportunity to renew materials if needed.
Honors students are encouraged to study abroad, and are given travel-study opportunities that are not available to other University students. Each year, two full Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Summer Honors Program scholarships are available for summer study abroad. This opportunity also includes a scholarship for six academic honors course credits related to the study abroad experience, taught by distinguished PASSHE faculty members.
Edinboro University has developed a scholarship program to assist students in the University Honors Program. Students entering the Honors Program as first-year students may make an application for scholarships at the time of application to General Education Honors. A limited number of scholarships also are available to students who enter the Honors Program after their first year.
The recently overhauled Mentor Program pairs incoming freshmen with an Honors upperclassman who can assist them in learning about the Honors Program upon their arrival to Edinboro. The mentors also serve as ambassadors to the campus for freshmen. Questions are answered by mentors who have vast knowledge of the Honors Program and University. The Mentor Program is unique on campus, so freshmen are able to learn more about the Honors Program and University to have a more successful transition from high school to college.
Along with the PASSHE Summer Honor’s Program, the Edinboro University Honors Program offers a few trips of its own. Students in good standing in the program may participate in a group trip every semester, a fall day trip, and a spring weekend trip. Previous day trips included the Cathedral of Learning in Pittsburgh and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Recent spring trips have included a four-day trip to Washington, D.C., where students visited the Newseum, Capitol Building and Holocaust Museum, and Toronto, where students went to the CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum and Casa Loma.
