UCR Honors Program/Honor Halls

<p>I was accepted into the honors program as an incoming freshman as well as I believe I am in the honors hall portion of Pentland. </p>

<p>Other than priority registration what is the advantages of the honors program/housing? </p>

<p>Anyone on here part of the UHP? </p>

<p>Also what is the purpose of the Summer University Honors Program if it is 2 days before the Bear Facts Registration?</p>

<p>I'm an incoming freshman and just joined UHP. I didn't really see any benefit to requesting housing in the honors hall. you're just closer to more honors students...but i don't see that as a major benefit.
there's more on this thread: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-california-riverside/923265-whats-honors-hall-like.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-california-riverside/923265-whats-honors-hall-like.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Yeah I heard something about getting money towards tuition but I wasn't sure. So did you request for honors housing in Pentland? If so I will probably see you soon. I'm confused also to where we will stay for registration because the Honors/chancellors registration is ahead of the others so I'd think we'd also get some sort of priority housing for staying overnight. And it definitly seems like the UHP is just something nice to have for E.C's.</p>

<p>Honors students get priority registration, as a first year student you will register at the beginning of the enrollment period along with the seniors.</p>

<p>There are Honors fellowships, the awards are subject to funding availability. Fellowships are not guaranteed. Based on funding availability, it is possible that not all eligible students will be awarded a fellowship. Each fellowship award category includes minimum qualifying requirements and need is a factor.</p>

<p>Honors Residential Fellowship: $1200/$1000 Award
Honors students living in Honors housing in Pentland Hills or Aberdeen/Inverness are eligible for the residential fellowship. Priority will be given to first year students, however, the award is also available to continuing students on an “as funds are available” basis. First year students are eligible for $1200 and continuing students may receive $1000. Students must meet the required grade point average, be in good standing and meet all Learning Contract stipulations in order to be awarded a fellowship.</p>

<p>Honors Academic Enrichment Fellowship: $500 Award
Honors students not living in Honors housing are eligible for the Honors Academic Enrichment fellowship. Continuing, Sophomore Component, and Upper Division students may be awarded honors academic enrichment fellowships in either winter or spring quarter, if the funds will be used to support research, EAP or UCDC. Students may receive only one fellowship per academic year.</p>

<p>Alright thanks dark horse I will need to apply for the honors housing fellowship asap! Are you also a part of UHP? honors housing?</p>

<p>I am part of the upper division honors program.</p>

<p>Would you say the honors experience has been worth the extra work?</p>
