University Honors Program

Application Process

Most students in the University Honors Program apply in the year before entering LMU for admission as a first-year student. Upon completing their LMU application, all LMU applicants receive an email inviting them to apply to the Honors Program. Application deadlines vary by year and applicants are encouraged to pay close attention to dates and details in the invitation letter and application materials.

Limited spots in the Honors Program may become available for internal (current LMU student) and external transfer applicants, depending on current Program size and resources. If transfer applicants are being considered, application information will be posted on the Program website (

Applications are reviewed holistically, considering student preparation, background, academic record, extracurricular interests, fit with the Program’s goals, and with an explicit aim to recognize and maximize the ethnic, racial, and ideological diversity of the student body.
