Honors Residential Academic Programs (RAPs) offer first-year students the opportunity to live and take classes 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 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.


  • Students must enroll in all of the Honors RAP classes associated with their RAP.
  • Since there is a housing component, students are only eligible to sign up for one RAP.
  • Students can join a RAP beginning May 19 on a first-come basis, instructions on how to join will be available soon.
