The Honors Program at Keystone benefits students of intellectual promise and high motivation who seek increasing challenge at the undergraduate level. The program is designed to recognize and encourage academic excellence, to stimulate students to work at their own pace, and to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information among students with different interests and in different disciplines.
The Honors Program provides co-curricular activities, service opportunities, and intellectual and social support, adding significant dimensions to the student's academic program. Students are placed in a challenging yet supportive environment where they can develop their critical and creative thinking skills and find ways to use these skills to make a difference in the larger community.
Honors Program students enrolled on a full-time basis may be eligible for scholarships between one-half tuition plus fees up to full tuition.
