Honors RAPs

As an entering honors first-year student, you may join an Honors Residential Academic Program (RAP). These programs offer students the opportunity to live together and study together. The courses selected as part of these programs assist you in meeting your General Education and Honors requirements. During the first semester, you'll take one or two courses with other honors students living on or near your floor. Each of these Honors RAPs is located within one of the two Commonwealth Honors College Residential Community first-year buildings, also designated as Residential First Year Experience Halls

Here are the Honors RAPs that will be offered in Fall 2017:
