The Advanced Honors Program encourages current UB and transfer students with outstanding academic records to actively engage in the intellectually challenging environment of the University Honors College. The Advanced Honors Program is an integral part of the University Honors College, which has graduated some of UB’s finest students—true pioneers who have gone on to excel at top graduate and professional programs and carve out remarkable careers. Advanced Honors scholars have the unique opportunity to do advanced, graduate-level research while working closely with faculty who are experts in their fields. The curriculum mirrors that of incoming freshmen—it is just fewer hours. Advanced Honors scholars can also apply for funding to participate in research projects, to study abroad, and to help defray the costs of other co-curricular activities. As a result, Advanced Honors scholars develop into some of the university’s most intellectually independent and ambitious students.
We invite transfer students to apply to the Advanced Honors Program as they are completing their UB application. Transfer students must also be admitted to UB in order to participate in AHP. Application deadlines are October 1 and March 1.
