The Mercyhurst University Honors Program offers students an enriched intellectual collegiate experience, both in and out of the classroom. Honors students 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 Mercyhurst Honors, the highest academic accolade given by Mercyhurst University, on those who satisfy the program requirements. 

The Mercyhurst University Honors Program director invites qualified high school seniors to apply to the Honors Program. Invited students are contacted by the Mercyhurst admission staff during the application process.
