UWM’s Honors College offers small, seminar-based coursework to students admitted to the Honors College. Successful completion of the Honors College requirements leads to the degree being conferred with Honors. Students are admitted to the Honors College based on their application for admission as a freshman. Transfer students and others who were not admitted as freshmen may request a review of their college record for consideration for admission. Read more about the Honors College.
