          Students enjoying their trip

          Preferential Scheduling

          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.

          Living Learning Floor

          Honors College students may elect to live in this on-campus residence environment, featuring programs tailored to their interests. The floor is located Highlands 1. Learn more about the Honors Living Learning floor.

          Extended Library Privileges

          Honors students may check out materials for up to eight weeks, with the opportunity to renew materials if needed.

          Study Abroad

          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 College 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 College. Those entering as first-year students may apply for scholarships at the time of application to Honors. 

          Mentor Program

          The Mentor Program connects incoming freshmen with an upperclass Honors student who can assist them in learning about the Honors College. The mentors also serve as ambassadors to the campus for freshmen. The Mentor Program is unique on campus, so freshmen are able to learn more about the Honors College and University to have a more successful transition from high school to college.

          Travel Opportunities

          Along with the PASSHE Summer Honor’s College, the Edinboro University Honors College 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 have included Niagra Falls and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Recent spring trips have included a trip to Washington, D.C., where students visited the Newseum, Capitol Building, and Holocaust Museum, and New York City, where students visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Bridge, the 9/11 Ground Zero Memorial, and other sites of cultural significance.
