CSU's Community for Exceptional Students

Welcome to the Honors College at Chicago State University. The Honors College was founded in 2004 as a means to better serve talented and highly motivated students. Since its inception the College has been committed to developing critical thinkers who are focused on leadership and addressing local, regional, national, and global issues. We seek students who are looking for a challenge in and outside the classroom and who desire to be surrounded by other like-minded students.

Designed for talented and highly motivated students, the Honors College at Chicago State University offers an enriched general education curriculum, expanded research in students' fields of study, and supportive faculty attention in a stimulating and rigorous academic environment. Scholarship and academic exploration are promoted, ultimately preparing students to pursue advanced studies, secure employment, and become lifelong learners and engaged citizens.
