Student Benefits

There may not be a red carpet (yet…), but we have a knack for making our students feel like somebody. You’ll work hard as an Honors student — and that hard work pays off with some VIP access on campus. As an Honors student, you’ll get:

  • A vibrant community of talented, culturally diverse peers
  • Small classes (16-24) taught by UNLV’s most talented professors
  • Unparalleled academic advising support
  • Research opportunities with nationally recognized faculty
  • Priority course registration
  • Special residential opportunities – Honors housing
  • Exclusive scholarship opportunities
  • Honors diploma designations
  • Preparation for admission to professional and graduate schools
  • Preparation for prestigious nationally competitive awards (Truman, Marshall, Goldwater, Fulbright, etc.)

In other words, we’ll take care of you. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention — pizza and bagels during midterms and finals!

“If it weren’t for the Honors College, I wouldn’t be working in an Alzheimer’s research lab on campus, I wouldn’t be mentoring first-year students, and I definitely wouldn’t have been accepted to a nationally competitive summer research fellowship at Mayo Clinic. I cannot wait to flaunt my UNLV gear while working alongside world-renown researchers and students from Harvard, Stanford, and other prestigious universities!”
