Honors Choice Days (Spring only)

Honors Choice Days are offered every spring after we release our acceptances.

Honors Choice days are designed for accepted incoming Honors students (potential applicants are welcome to attend). These days provide the most information and include meeting the Honors Dean, members of the Honors faculty and staff. The day includes time with a student’s Honors Academic Advisor, a chance to meet with other accepted Honors students, tours of the Honors residence and information about the Honors College. Honors Choice Days last 2+ hours . Held in the Donna Garff Marriott Honors Community Building. Light refreshments served.

  • Dates will be updated for Spring 2018 with the release of Honors admissions decisions on January 15th 2018.


Should you schedule an Honors Tour, we also recommend scheduling a visit with the University Office of Admissions to see a full University of Utah presentation and receive a campus tour.

**The Honors College will also participate in the University Red, White & U Day on in April of 2018.  This event gives you the opportunity to live the life of a Utah student. This day-long and interactive program will allow you and your parents to choose your campus experience. Not only will you learn more about our various student services and get a taste of student life, our academic areas will be featured to help you learn more about our world-class programs. You’ll be able to make valuable connections with our campus representatives, academic advisors, current students, and fellow admitted students!
