Regarding Application Period: Students who have been awarded the Regents or Presidential scholarships are required to complete the Honors Program application, including an appointment to talk with an Honors advisor.  At this point, there is little to no appointment availability prior to the May 1st deadline.  Students should book the first available appointment to proceed in completing the RAPS requirements.

Waitlisted Regents awardees are not required to submit an application to Honors until or unless they are awarded the scholarship, though they may still wish to apply to the Honors Program for personal fulfillment.
