Summer Welcome 2020

Welcome to the MU Honors College!

Our online Summer Welcome (SW) program is designed to prepare you for course registration, becoming an Honors Tiger (a part of our ambush), and make sure that you are fully onboard before we begin classes in the Fall.

Our daily Chat Session, designed to follow the viewing of the video, will open up each Day 1 of Orientation at 11:50 a.m. and last for 40 minutes (until 12:30 CDT).

Each heading, below, is an active link that will take you to the sites you will need.


Set up Your Honors SW Advising Appointment

SW Honors appointments are only arranged once you are actually participating in the two-day SW experience, and after you have met with your academic advisor on Day 2. Go to this page to learn more and to find the contact number to call.

If you have any other questions, you may find the answers by exploring our website. But we also encourage you to contact us by email, the daily SW Chat, or by calling–we like engaging with our students. One of our staff members will be sure to respond through each of those forums as appropriate and as soon as we are able.

For those not yet admitted into Honors, unfortunately we are unable to admit any new students for Fall 2020 (our applications closed on March 01). Please contact us after Summer Welcome (which ends July 17) and we will be happy to discuss with you how a student enrolled at MU can apply for entry in either a subsequent semester (current MU students and transfer students) or academic year (first-year students).
