Honors students are among the most active students on campus. They often carry the maximum number of credits, participate actively in the intellectual and artistic life of the university, pursue independent research, hold leadership positions on campus and are involved in many community groups and activities. To enable them to maintain their high level of engagement and still pursue a rigorous course of academic study, the University has granted Honors students the privilege of early enrollment dates.

*Exception: Second-semester freshmen who are enrolled in their first Honors course in the spring and have a 3.3+ URI GPA are exempted from this requirement and will be invited to complete early registration for the fall.
Early registration is not automatic. At the beginning of each semester, eligible students are notified about the opportunity to register early for courses the following semester. To receive early registration, eligible Honors students must complete all of the following requirements:
Congratulations, accepted students!
Notifications of Honors eligibility will be emailed mid-February.
