Parent's Page

One of the most important decisions parents and their son or daughter can make is where to go to college. So, it's understandable when parents call the Honors College with a list of questions...What are your application deadlines? When will acceptance letters be mailed? Has my child been accepted? When can we visit campus? or - the big one - What is the Honors College, exactly?

With such queries in mind, a page of FAQs was created just for you. If we can be of further assistance, please contact the Honors College.
