Honors College

By Invitation

The Honors College will invite you to join our honors family when our UMass Lowell Admission’s office notifies us that you meet the eligibility criteria for honors admissions. Invited students will receive a separate invitation from the college via U.S. Mail.

Invitations are sent out to eligible students who are either:

  • Entering  college for the first time or
  • Transferring from another college.

By Student Request

Any student interested in becoming a member of the Honors College may fill out the Application for Honors Membership and return it to the college by mail, email, or fax. We welcome eligible students who have demonstrated a love for learning and who have solid academic credentials.
