Honors Program

Expand Your Knowledge

The overarching purpose of the Oregon Tech Honors Program (OTHP) is to provide highly motivated Oregon Tech students with a complementary academic curriculum and a collection of extracurricular learning experiences that promote a more well-rounded future career professional, a socially responsible person, and connected and liberally educated student: this is the idea of the professional as a person. A professional, understood in this way, is a person connected to many communities, locally and globally, scholarly and civic-oriented, and is a person who strives to make the most of those connections with others to lead a more meaningful life.

The Honors Program accepts applications each year from January 1st until September 1st. Review begins at the start of Oregon Tech's spring term.
