Honors College

The USA Honors college is designed to help exceptionally capable and motivated students get the most out of their college experience. Through challenging coursework, meaningful research or other creative endeavors, and international experience, it gives them the tools and opportunities to excel intellectually and academically. In short, it offers an Ivy-League education at a fraction of the price, right here on the Gulf Coast.

Mission Statement

The University of South Alabama Honors College offers a curriculum of interdisciplinary excellence designed to stimulate analytical and critical thinking of exceptionally qualified and highly motivated students. In this effort, the USA Honors College challenges the students' scholarly and creative abilities, provides cultural enrichment, and engages them in community service. The USA Honors College aspires to instill in students the intellectual skills and habits to  become leaders in their community, country, and careers. Within the context and diversity of a growing mid-size urban university, the Honors College provides the academic atmosphere, cultural opportunities, and mutually supportive community feel of a small, selective college.

Two Honors options are available at the University of South Alabama:

1) A four-year program resulting in the designation "With University Honors" on the transcript upon graduation.

2) Departmental programs resulting in the designation of "Departmental Honors " on the transcript in many, but not all, departments upon graduation. Click HERE for more Information about Departmental programs.

Sarah Meeker (Spanish) for winning Phi Sigma Iota's Dr. Anthony S. Corbiere Scholarships. Hers as one of only ten such awards in the nation this year, and she will use it to pay for graduate work in translation. Sarah is the fourth USA student in four consecutive years to win one of these scholarships. Way to Go, Sarah!

Honors Spotlight - Seniors Edition

Kaitlyn Roberts (Chemistry)

The Great K-Rob graduates next week. After a gap year, she hopes to be back at South (Go Jags!) for Medical School.

"One thing I would suggest to Honors students is to get to actually know everyone in Honors. The people in honors are truly awesome. Some of my favorite memories from college have come from just getting to understand different views on things. I really have enjoyed being part of such a great Honors College. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know everyone in the college. The late night food runs, study sessions, and study breaks have been a blast….. The Honors College has truly been my family for the past four years and I’m going to miss y’all SO MUCH next year.”
