Admissions Information

The Campus Honors Program primarily admits incoming freshmen. Current freshmen also have the opportunity to apply to the program immediately after their first semester. Details for both of these paths of admission are given below.


For Incoming Freshmen



The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Undergraduate Application form serves as your application to all campus-level and college-level honors programs. Rather than fill out multiple forms (one for undergraduate admission to the University of Illinois, others for admission to specific UIUC honors programs), you need to complete only the application for admission to UIUC. Be sure to provide all the information called for in the following sections of the application form:

  • Awards and special achievements in your high school years;
  • Extra-curricular activities, including leadership positions in clubs, teams, or other organizations.
  • Work experience.

Supplemental Campus Honors Program Application Form:

If you would like to provide additional information to the Campus Honors Program beyond what you already provided on the UIUC Application for Admission, please complete the Supplemental Application Form below. This form will be available from the Honors Program by November 10, 2016, on this website in PDF format. It is due on December 1, 2016 (postmarked by or emailed on). This is intended to communicate any major changes in the applicant's record from that submitted application for admission. This will inform the CHP staff of the changes. This is for students applying for admission in Fall 2017. Materials on this form are seen only by Campus Honor Program staff and not provided to other campus units.
