A community of scholars

Fuel your passion for learning in a community of fellow students hungry for intellectual challenge, creative expression, cultural enrichment, professional development, and personal growth. You’ll work closely with faculty in curricular and extra-curricular activities for a robust exploration of issues, ideas, and problem-solving. In your capstone project, you’ll synthesize your learning and passions into something that showcases the skills you’ve honed as an Honors student—something that lets your future employers or schools know that you’re prepared to make a serious contribution.

How it works

If you have a minimum high school unweighted GPA of 3.5 or a minimum college GPA of 3.0, and if you want to be part of a community of high-achieving, highly motivated students, then we invite you to apply to Reed Honors.

Your hard work shows up on your transcript as either an Honors minor or an Honors concentration, credentials that communicate your desire to push harder, never stop learning and growing, and your ability to complete a rigorous course of intellectual study.

The Honors Program application is now open for Fall 2023! The deadline to apply is March 1, 2023.
