Where motivation gives you an edge

Currently, 8 percent of Manchester's student body participates in the Honors Program, and each year, that number increases as more students see what the Honors Program can offer. Honors students are self-disciplined, creative and organized. They are also highly motivated, with a strong desire to learn.

Honors students may:

  • convert regular courses to courses for Honors credit.
  • complete an honors thesis to earn an Honors Diploma.
  • show graduate schools and employers their accomplishments. Honors classes will be marked on their transcripts.

Admission to the Honors Program
There are two ways you can join the Honors Program at Manchester University:

  1. You can be admitted as a first-year student. Students who:

    • submit a completed application for admission by Dec. 31,
    • are awarded a Presidential Scholarship or top-level Ability and Interest Scholarship, and
    • attend Scholarship Day

    will be automatically considered for Honors Program admission. Those who receive the previously mentioned scholarships but do not attend Scholarship Day will be sent an application for the Honors Program in late March.


  2. You can be invited to apply. First-year students with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 after their first semester will be invited to apply to the Honors program.

Transfer students with sophomore standing and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 after their first semester at Manchester may request to apply as well as qualified international students.
