Zooming with our alum Colin Christensen

Although there are still challenges facing high school seniors who plan to enter college in the fall of 2023, we will make applying to the Honors Program as personal as possible.

The Emory & Henry College Honors Program is active in the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), the National Society for Minorities in Honors (NSFMIH), and the Virginia Collegiate Honors Council (VCHC).

Our Honors students have too many benefits and opportunities to briefly list here, so please review the “About” and “Benefits” pages.

The Honors Program admission process is based on a holistic review of each student’s application. First, complete your application to the College. Once you receive the email letting you know that you have been accepted to E&H you can begin working on your application to the Honors Program. 

If you have already been accepted to the college (Congratulations!), the next step is to “Apply to the Honors Program”: use this link: Once you complete this form, we’ll contact you.

The Honors Program will have two Scholarship Days when you can interview for the program and meet our current scholars. The first on December 10, 2022 will be fully remote, and the second on February 18, 2023 will be on campus. But we are always happy to meet you and conduct our interviews if you are coming to campus at other times, especially if you’re traveling from a great distance to audition, make contact with coaches, try out for our Equestrian Team, or other reasons as well. We’ll do our best to work with you! 

“Honors is the family where I found my place on campus and my voice in the classroom. It is the place where I have been able to grow as a leader and foster my connections with both students and faculty, on and off campus. The Honors Program stands as the main tenant of my life and college experience.”

—Layne Hubble, Class of 2020
