An Extraordinary Experience

At the heart of UNLV's sprawling campus, we've created a very special place - a small, selective college delivering an academic experience that rivals the most esteemed undergraduate programs around the country. This is our Honors College.

Small classes. Big ideas.

Honors College was built for students who simply want more — more depth, more challenges, more opportunities. When you choose Honors, you'll be joining a community of passionate students who, despite their various areas of study, share a drive to build fulfilling lives that will impact the world.
