On-Campus Admission to UHP
The University Honors Program provides current first-year students the opportunity to join UHP through the On-Campus Admissions program. First-year students who achieve a 3.5 GPA or higher during Fall Quarter of their first year will be invited to apply to UHP during the following Winter Quarter. Application invitations are sent in February, and admissions decisions announced in mid-April.
The application process includes open-ended essay questions about overcoming challenges or barriers, recent service activities, and what students would like to accomplish by the end of their academic careers. The application also requires one letter of recommendation from a UC Davis faculty member - Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, or Lecturer - and also allows for one optional recommendation letter from anyone of the student's choosing who can speak to their ability to succeed in Honors. More information can be found in the Fall 2019 Application Guide.
During the application period, UHP hosts information sessions. The times and locations will be included in the email invitation. UHP does not provide admissions opportunities to current second or third year UC Davis students, and the application process for Fall 2019 has passed.
