OLD Honors Program

Welcome to the Honors Program

The Concord University Honors Program provides students with records of high academic achievement the opportunity to enrich their educational experience through independent artistic development, professional research, and/or community service, in order to better prepare for graduate school and professional careers in an increasingly competitive, global economy. Students earn Honors credit by participating in interdisciplinary Honors seminars or working on independent honors project under the guidance of CU faculty.  Each semester, honors students participate in academic, cultural, social and service-oriented enrichment activities.  The Honors Program provides high-achieving students with a community of like-minded students and faculty.  

Benefits of participation in the Honors Program include:

  • Access to the Honors Study Lounge
  • Early course registration
  • Travel opportunities 
  • Honors Course substitution in the General Education Program
  • Become part of a community of student-scholars
