The Burnett Honors College designs and oversees the academic programs of the most promising undergraduate students at UCF.
It is open to both freshmen and transfer students. The programs, in affiliation with the National Collegiate Honors Council, are designed around one concept—academic excellence. The Burnett Honors College consists of two distinct programs, University Honors and Honors in the Major, neither of which is mutually exclusive in that students can enroll in both programs. Students need not be enrolled in University Honors to be eligible for Honors in the Major.
The Burnett Honors College accepts applications from high-achieving high school seniors applying to be freshmen immediately following their senior year (first time in college). Typically, academically talented students identified by the UCF Undergraduate Admissions Office are invited to apply to University Honors by The Burnett Honors College. However, any incoming freshman (first time in college) student interested in applying to The Burnett Honors College may request an Honors Application.
TBHC also houses Honors in the Major which is UCF’s oldest and most prestigious UG research program.
