A Community of Scholars

Our Honors Program offers you the academic challenge you crave within the framework of a supportive, affirming community.

The program features outstanding academic opportunities, mentoring, and recognition events from orientation through graduation. Academic and social events are designed to promote leadership and public service, so students may develop valuable networking and other career-oriented skills.

Please note that there is no separate application for the Suffolk University Honors Program. Students are automatically considered for the program when they submit their application for admission.
