Honors Orientation

Welcome to the University Honors Program!

The University Honors Program team would love to meet you at Honors Welcome before you attend UCD Orientation. UHP hosts one Honors Welcome event in conjunction to the designated UHP session of UCD Orientation. At Honors Welcome you will meet other incoming UHP students as well as current UHP students, faculty, staff, and get a head start planning your fall quarter schedule with the assistance of UHP advisors. (It is a great time to locate a UHP roommate!)

The Summer 2017, Honors Welcome dates are:

  • College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Wednesday, July 12
  • College of Letters and Science, Wednesday, July 19
  • College of Biological Sciences, Wednesday, August 2
  • College of Engineering, Wednesday, August 9

Honors Welcome is by invitation only. Incoming UHP first year students will be emailed Honors Welcome information with a RSVP request, to their UCD email account, after Memorial Day.

Honors Welcome takes place from 3-7pm and includes sessions for both incoming students and their guests (family). There is not a fee for attending Honors Welcome, however, you will need to pay for parking, if you plan to park on campus.

If you wish to spend the night on-campus, after Honors Welcome, you must select the "First- Year Program & Overnight with Pre-Event Additional Night" option when registering for UCD Orientation. You can register for your First-year Orientation session through MyAdmissions.

Students who are unable to attend Honors Welcome and the UHP designated session of UCD Orientation will have the opportunity to meet with current UHP student-staff and UHP professional staff on day-two of their selected UCD Orientation session. The UHP team meets with the students prior to Fall course registration.
