All Honors students have priority registration. This means that regardless of class standing, Honors students may register for classes on the first available day.
Honors students are frequently invited to present research findings at conferences around the country--especially the Southern Regional Honors Conference, the National Collegiate Honors Conference, the Virginias Collegiate Honors Conference, and the National Conference on Undergraduate Research--and engage in other travel opportunities while in the program.
Students who are accepted to present their research at these conferences will have their expenses paid for by the Honors College.
