A NEW KIND OF HONORS

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

flexible · challenging · purpose-driven · individualized

Honors students at Virginia Tech work toward the completion of an Honors Laureate Diploma. The Honors Laureate Diploma challenges students to pursue disciplinary depth, transdisciplinary capabilities, and purpose-driven engagement that are the hallmarks of the VT-Shaped student experience.

We have designed the Honors Laureate Diploma to work with busy schedules. In fact, it is so flexible that it is technically possible (though not advised) to complete the Honors Laureate Diploma without adding a single credit to your coursework!
