Honors vs Non-Honors

<p>What's the difference between a honors and a non-honors student? Of course, the title is one difference, but does it have any impact on the opportunities available to a student? Is it important if one wants to apply to graduate school?</p>

<p>It can make a big difference in opportunities for a student -- priority registration for classes, small freshman seminars, special dorms, undergraduate research opportunities, etc. It can help with graduate school applications in that professors tend to know honors students better and that is reflected in grad school recommendations. Some schools, like UNC, don't give honors students advantages in registration etc. so for those schools it really doesn't matter.</p>

<p>Hmm... Well is it possible to become an honorary student once you're already in the University of Washington at Seattle?</p>

<p>of course,
you can apply for late admission</p>
