An Extraordinary Experience

At the heart of UNLV's sprawling campus, we've created a very special place – a small, selective college that delivers a distinct academic experience.

This is Our Honors College (UNLV)

Small classes. Big ideas.

The Honors College was built for students who simply want more — more depth, more challenges, more opportunities. When you choose Honors, you join a community of passionate students who share a drive to build fulfilling lives that will impact the world.

The Honors Community

We’re a close-knit community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who enthusiastically support one another.

"A wise man once said, 'if you are the smartest person in a room, you are in the wrong room.' Honors College was the right room for me."
