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 are eligible to apply and who have already been admitted to UCR. If you have questions about admissions please contact Undergraduate Admissions.
Can I apply to University Honors if I have not yet decided to attend UCR?
Yes! Your application to UCR does not bind you to 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 admittance to Honors transfer to the other campus?
Each campus has their own process for honors admissions. You must apply separately.
If I do not meet the eligibility criteria to apply as an incoming freshman, when will be my next opportunity to apply?
First year 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 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 and fourth year students are not eligible to apply. Admission to University Honors will be conditional, on final spring quarter grades meeting the GPA eligibility criteria.
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.
