About the Program
The Honors College is an interdisciplinary college that offers customized learning pathways for students who seek to enhance their education with academically “different” types of experiences.
For first-time freshmen, Honors Foundations is an innovative two-year program designed to enrich students’ first years on campus, particularly in their general education courses and introductory courses in their major. Students apply to this program between mid-fall and early May of their senior year of high school. There are also ways for some first-year transfer students and WVU freshmen to apply to the program.
The Honors Foundations program provides ample support to encourage you to take intellectual risks, make discoveries, explore the world around you, participate in exciting cutting-edge research projects and find your passion.
Our courses are active, hands-on learning laboratories where students can enhance
their skills. Students should select Honors courses that will challenge them and
inspire them to ask questions, seek impossible answers, and delve into the unknown.
