If I am invited to apply to University Honors, does that mean that I have been admitted to UCR?
University Honors only invites students who have been admitted to UCR and meet eligibility requirements. If you have questions about admission to UCR, please contact Undergraduate Admissions.
Can I apply to University Honors if I have not yet decided to attend UCR?
Yes! Your application to University Honors does not commit you to attend UCR; but, hopefully, becomes a significant reason to submit your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) to our campus.
If I'm accepted to University Honors, but decide to attend another UC, will my admission to Honors transfer to the other campus?
No, you will have to contact the campus you select to inquire about honors opportunities.
If I do not meet the eligibility criteria to apply as an incoming freshman, when will be my next opportunity to apply?
First-year UCR students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.5, or above, at the end of winter quarter will be invited to apply. If accepted, they will join University Honors as second-year students during fall quarter of the following academic year.
When can current UCR students apply to join University Honors?
Current first-year and second-year students with a cumulative GPA of 3.5, or above, at the end of winter quarter will be invited to apply. Current third-year and fourth-year students are not eligible to apply. Admission to University Honors will be contingent upon cumulative grade point average at the conclusion of spring quarter.
When is the deadline to apply?
Please review the application deadline specified in the e-mail inviting you to apply. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
My cumulative GPA met the requirement, but I did not receive and invitation. What can I do?
