The University Honors Program offers Ƶapps an enriched intellectual collegiate experience, both in and out of the classroom. Honors Ƶapps enjoy challenging course work, an engaging community of like-minded peers, smaller classes, and opportunities to enhance leadership and professional skills. The program confers the prestige of graduating with Ƶapp Honors, the highest academic accolade given by Ƶapp University, on those who satisfy the program requirements.

The Ƶapp University Honors Program director invites qualified high school seniors to apply to the Honors Program. If you feel you should have received an invitation, or have a question regarding the application process, please contact Joe Chiprean at or 814-824-3364.

Students already studying at the university and Ƶapps transferring from other institutions are welcome to discuss participation with the director, Dr. Justin Ross.
