Advantages of Membership
Honors students who are in good standing with the Honors Program have access to early registration. This privilege only extends to students who have taken an Honors course (or contracted for Honors credit) the previous semester, as well as maintained the required GPA for their college. All Honors students are required to attend an Honors Advising session in order for the early registration date to be added to their peoplesoft file. See MavSync and check your UNO email for more details about WHEN Honors advising takes place—and how to sign up!
The Honors Program is located in Kayser Hall, Room 208. There is a student lounge for studying and relaxing, a small kitchen with microwave and refrigerator for lunches, and computer facilities with connection to the internet for email and researching purposes.

If you are interested in applying for residency at UV, you can login and complete the housing application, or see Mrs. McIvor in the Honors Office (Kayser Hall 208).

Honors students can enroll in Honors-Only courses and seminars designed especially for them. These classes have smaller class size and greater student-professor interaction, allowing each student to benefit more from the course.
Juniors and seniors in the Honors Program have the option to take an Honors Internship for 3 - 6 credit hours and attain some real world experience.
Domestic and International Honors Semesters are available to students through the National Collegiate Honors Council. These semester-long academic experiential programs allow honors students from throughout the United States and Canada to earn sixteen hours of honors credit in learning experiences that emerge from the unique traits of the semester's locale.
