Wilbur Wright College Honors Program Application


The Honors Program at Wright College is designed to enhance the college experience for highly motivated students who are talented, intellectually curious, ambitious, and who desire academic challenges.

We invite you to join us!

The Honors curriculum will prepare you to achieve your academic and professional goals, excel at every stage of your undergraduate education and build an academic community with peers and faculty members. Plus, one of the core goals of Wright's Honors Program is to promote transfer to leading public and private 4-year colleges and universities and to facilitate scholarship opportunities.

Honors courses will be offered in various academic disciplines and emphasize critical thinking, research skills, analytical writing, speaking, the use of primary source material, and information literacy.

Students who successfully complete at least four Honors courses in the Honors Program or two Honors Courses and two Honors Projects will earn an Honors Certificate.
