Freshman Programs

Considering Honors?

Incoming freshmen who have not yet joined the Honors College are still encouraged to apply, as there is no deadline to join. Though students who joined after May 31st will not be able to register for honors classes for the Fall semester at New Student Orientation, they may be able to register for honors classes either at late registration or during the first week of classes.

For more information on what it is like to be a freshman in the Honors College, see our page for Current Freshmen. 

Programs for Freshmen

In addition to the benefits that all students receive from membership in the Honors College, freshmen may take part in programs, including workshops and events, specifically designed for them. Visit our Freshmen Events page for more information.


Honors Learning Community 

This residential program is located in the recently rennovated Laurel Hall, conveniently located in central campus, and close to Lampasas, the home of the Honors College.

Students can participate in programming to get to know other students in Honors who have chosen to make a strong commitment to academics in a creative and engaging environment. 

Note: The Learning Community still has open spaces for men! Women who would like to participate in the Learning Community can be put on a waiting list. If you would like to sign up for Laurel or be put on the waiting list, please contact reslifellc@txstate.edu

For more information, visit our Honors Learning Community page.
