Plan a Visit

We can’t wait to share our Honors & Scholars programs with future Vols. If you’re a curious, driven, and passionate scholar, we’d love to tell you more about UT’s honors experience! There are several ways to learn more about your options for honors at the University of Tennessee.

Looking for more information on how to apply? Visit our page for incoming first-year students, current UT students, or transfer students to learn more.

Weekly Info Sessions

Hear from current honors Vols about their UT experience at our weekly informational session! Once a week, we’ll host an online session exploring the Honors & Scholars experience at UT. Hosted by our Honors Ambassadors, these sessions will give future Vols the opportunity to hear directly from students. This session is a great entry point for prospective students looking to picture themselves as an honors Vol. Click here to register for a virtual interest session!

Virtual Visits

Speak with our Admissions Coordinator or one of our Honors Ambassadors from the comfort of your own home! Each week we offer virtual visits to explore our honors programs and the transformational opportunities they offer. Visit the ambassadors’ profiles to schedule a virtual visit.

On-Campus Visits

Engage with Honors & Scholars during a trip to Rocky Top! You can meet with our Honors Ambassadors throughout the week by signing up for a Host-A-Student visit. Host-A-Student visits allow prospective students to get a first-hand look at the honors experience. Our ambassadors will host you during one of their classes, take you for a coffee or a bite to eat, explain our different programs, and chat with you about what to expect from your UT education.

Additionally, meetings with an Honors Admissions representative are available most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Please contact Sarah Hunter at sarahhunter@utk.edu to schedule one of these visits.
