​​​How to Apply

No formal application to General Education Honors is necessary for students applying as freshmen, although they should indicate their interest by checking the appropriate box on the Rhode Island College application form. Continuing students and those interested in the Junior Year Honors Colloquium and Seminar should contact the director of honors.

Students interested in Departmental Honors should apply to the honors committees in their respective departments no later than the beginning of the semester before the senior year.

Students in Education who will be student teaching in the eighth semester should apply in the fifth semester and do their departmental honors projects in semesters six and seven.
