The Honors Program.

The Honors Program at Strayer University strives to promote academic excellence and maximize the intellectual and career potential of Strayer’s most motivated, curious, and academically talented students.

Online Honors Courses

Eligible undergraduate students have the opportunity to enroll in select online honors courses. These courses are exclusively for honors students, which means you are in class with like-minded peers who share your motivation and curiosity. We hand-pick our faculty members to teach these courses and they are focused on fostering critical thinking, connecting your learning to real-world applications, and creating an engaging classroom community. Honors courses cover the same content as a standard course, but will encourage you to dive deeper into a subject matter and will stimulate robust discussion. In addition, honors courses will be designated as such on your official transcript.

Honors Connect

Honors Connect events are opportunities outside of the classroom, virtual and on-ground, aimed to enhance honors students' overall experience at Strayer. They may be professional development, networking, social, or leadership opportunities.

Honors Community

Honors students are invited to engage with other honors students in an exclusive online Honors Community. Students are encouraged to socialize, share success stories, resources, opportunities, ask questions, network, create study groups, plan meet ups, and more!


To be eligible for the Honors Program, students must have a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA, must have completed a minimum of 13.5 college-level quarter credits, and must be free of academic integrity violations.

Transfer students who meet these eligibility requirements are eligible for the Honors Program after successfully completing one quarter at Strayer and maintaining a 3.5 GPA. Please note that GPAs do not "transfer" to Strayer; therefore, you must establish a minimum 3.5 GPA at Strayer.

For more information, contact honors@strayer.edu. Current students may contact their Success Coach, home campus, or Verizon Onsite Dean.

"By taking classes with other honors students and being surrounded by other critical thinkers, I have been pushed to stretch my mind and to think critically more often. It’s great to see how involved my classmates are, especially in the discussions. The coursework is the same, but the experience is enlightening.”
