Honors College Information
The Honors College and Learning Communities are distinct but complementary. Participation in both is not only possible, but can also enhance the overall experience of students who attend Purdue University. Students who have accepted an invitation to the Honors College are welcome to apply for any Learning Community for which they are eligible (i.e. designated college, major or university-wide eligibility). These eligibility requirements are listed on each individual Learning Community profile page; from the overall Profiles page, students can simply click on the college/school to which they have been admitted to see the appropriate options.
- First-year admission to the Honors College is by invitation
- Honors College students who live on campus are required to live with the Honors College
- Honors College students may participate in non-residential or residence-optional Learning Communities
Participants in the Honors College who are planning to live on campus will be housed in Shreve Hall; a Housing Contract must be completed by May 5th, 2013, for those who intend to live on campus (http://www.housing.purdue.edu/Housing/Contracting/Undergraduate.html). Questions regarding status as an Honors College participant should be directed to the Honors College (765-494-2929 or email@example.com). Questions regarding completing a Housing Contract should be directed to University Residences (765-494-1000).
IMPORTANT:The Honors College is a residential experience in Shreve Hall. Honors students who apply for and are placed in a Learning Community (LC) with an optional residential component will live with the Honors College in Shreve Hall rather than the LC. For example, if you apply for and are placed in the Animalia LC AND have accepted your invitation to the Honors College, you will live in Shreve Hall with the Honors College and participate in the LC activities and courses with the Animalia LC. Accepting your invitation to the Honors College does not influence your eligibility to be placed in a LC, only your residential placement. As the Honors College is a residential experience, it is incompatible with LCs that have a residential requirement.
