Introducing the New Hamel Honors & Scholars College
The University of New Hampshire is proud to announce the establishment of its Hamel Honors and Scholars College, which will greatly expand UNH’s capacity to identify, reach and support high-achieving students. Opening in the fall of 2024, the Hamel Honors and Scholars College will build on the DNA of the University Honors Program to create a transformational homebase for academic leaders at the center of a top public research university.
Honors College students will choose how to distribute their honors work among courses, research and co-curricular experiences.
No need to go through an additional application process — all accepted students are automatically considered for the Honors College.
The first incoming cohort in the Honors College, likely 250 to 300 students, is slated to be welcomed for the fall 2024 semester.
