College of Western Idaho (CWI) is excited to welcome future students into a brand-new Honors Program. This two-year program is open to first time, full-time, degree-seeking students who are excited to maximize their education experience and become leaders in and out of the classroom. Designed to allow students to simultaneously complete their degree of choice along with the honors program courses, the Honors Program promotes academic, social, and civic opportunities and encourages students to get involved both on and off campus.  

“We're delighted to welcome a diverse group of students into the Honors Program cohort and are excited to walk alongside them as they develop into life-long learners both in and outside of the classroom,” said Honors Program Coordinator, Michal Yadlin. “We're looking forward to the Honors students working to achieve their program degrees along with an opportunity to hone the skills that are vital in becoming active and curious global citizens.”

Students accepted into the Honors Program will have the opportunity to work closely with honors designated faculty and participate in events each semester within the CWI community. Transfer partnerships between local and regional institutions are available, and students will receive intentional advising and mentoring from CWI faculty and staff. Students in the Honors Program will also be eligible for membership in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and have the opportunity to engage in community service both within the CWI community as well as the Treasure Valley at large.    

Applications are now open for Fall 2022 semester. Visit the Honors Program page for more information including benefits, admissions requirements, scholarship opportunities, expectations, and more. Contact honorsprogram@cwi.edu with questions.
