To join University Honors, students must first be admitted to the University of Maryland’s highly rigorous and competitive Honors College.

For best consideration, prospective students should submit their application to the University of Maryland no later than the priority deadline of November 1.

Students who are invited to join the Honors College (about 10% of all applicants) will then be asked which Honors College living/learning programs interest them most. Historically, students who say they are most interested in University Honors have been invited to join. The flexible structure of the program makes it relatively easy to accommodate student interest.

Students must confirm their intent to enroll in the University of Maryland and the University Honors Program no later than May 1.
