Benefits
There are many advantages associated with membership in the Honors Program.  Consider just a few of the benefits:

Graduating with University Honors

Students who fulfill program requirements graduate with University Honors, a designation reflected on the diploma and transcript.

Priority Registration Privileges

Members of the University Honors Program are eligible to register for classes before the rest of the general student body. This means that honors students are much more likely to get the classes they want at the times they want.

Scholarship Service Hours  

Many scholarships at The University of Memphis require a service obligation to the institution of 75-150 hours per academic year.  Because honors courses require significant enrichment activities by the student over and above normal course requirements, scholarship service hours are considered fulfilled for students who are either enrolled in an honors class, contracting for honors credit, or otherwise completing the requirements for an Honors Experience.  For more information, click here.

Honors Living-Learning Community

Honors students have the option to live on Honors-designated floors in the Living Learning Complex, which allows honors students to share living and learning experiences:

Honors Student Lounge

Honors students have access to the Honors student lounge located in Honors Hall, (2nd Floor).  The Honors lounge is outfitted with a projection screen television that has surround sound.  Honors students frequently use this area as a place for movie nights!
