No two students are alike, and there is no one way to learn. SUNY Brockport offers a number of unique and exciting programs to make your learning experience meaningful and memorable.

Honors College

One of the oldest and largest among SUNY colleges, Brockport’s Honors College currently enrolls more than 400 students. As an Honors student, enjoy small classes, custom-designed coursework, and opportunities for independent, creative, and interdisciplinary study. You will work closely with distinguished professors who will be your mentors and personal advisors. Discover the highest level of your intellectual and academic ability and earn special recognition for outstanding achievement, including designation on your final college transcript.

Honors students also receive a number of perks, which may include:

  • $6,000 Prometheus Scholarship for New York State residents or $10,000 scholarship for out-of-state students (for Fall 2022 entering first-year Honors students only; renewable up to four years)
  • Free parking pass (for eligible first-year students only; renewable up to four years)
  • Dedicated Honors College academic advisor
  • Honors House Living Learning Community
  • Honors Lounge with computers
  • Priority registration, housing, and early move-in date

To be considered for Honors, you must file a supplemental application (after you have submitted your undergraduate application to SUNY Brockport) by March 15. (The Prometheus Scholarship cannot be combined with any Extraordinary Academic Scholarships.)
