Academically, Honors RAP students are provided with the advantages of a small liberal arts college experience— small seminar-style classes, close contact with faculty and other students, a strong supportive community— within the resources and diversity of a large, world-class state research university. Honors RAP thus assists and supports its students in navigating the university while developing their own intellectual curiosity and skills, plus a life-long love of learning.
Honors RAP also offers returning students the opportunity for leadership within their own living-learning community. Honors RAP student leaders serve as mentors for first year students, work closely with Honors RAP Directors, develop their own leadership skills, choose and implement extra-curricular activities, and serve as residence hall staff.
The Honors RAP program fee, as with all RAP program fees, is $850 for the academic year and subject to change. It is a one-time, non-refundable fee which covers the cost of in-residence instruction, academic enrichment through co-curricular activities, community-building events, and guest speakers. The RAP fee is in addition to tuition, fees, room & board and will be applied to the student’s fall semester bill.
