Honors Program

Established in 1991 and expanded in 2005, USC Aiken's Honors Program offers academically talented, highly motivated students opportunities for enriched learning experiences both in and outside the classroom. 

Honors students participate in a unique learning community that enjoys small classes and independent study under the direction of USC Aiken's best teacher-scholars in a program that cultivates critical thinking, analysis and creative expression.

Incoming students who qualify are formally invited to apply to the Honors Program.  Continuing and transfer students with 45 credit hours or less and a GPA of 3.5 or higher may also apply.
