At the Cook Honors College, we believe an honors education should be about innovative, leading-edge thinking. Not higher pressure. We do things differently.
We don’t take tests in core classes. We debate the philosophy that underlies existence. We write together, read together, and exchange ideas in a thoughtful, connected way that is refreshingly open and scholarly.
You’ll find opportunities here—for research, for expressing your talents, for personal growth, and for community service. We back you up with scholarships and an achievement fund that helps with the cost of internships and studying abroad.
From your first day here, you’ll be part of our community of scholars, living in Whitmyre Hall and taking honors core classes in rooms filled with art.
As a Cook Honors College student, you’ll begin the program in the fall semester.
We will review your application to IUP first, then your application to the Cook Honors College.
You should hear from the Undergraduate Admissions Office about your acceptance to IUP about two weeks after you’ve submitted all the required items. You’ll be notified of your admission to the Cook Honors College after learning about your university admission.
We’re happy to help you with any questions you may have.
