The Honors Program at Washington Adventist University strives to provide academically talented students the opportunity to engage and explore subject material in greater depth and breadth, inspiring them to excel as independent learners and investigators within a collaborative learning community.
Students who meet the eligibility criteria and have been accepted for regular admission to Washington Adventist University are encouraged to submit an application to enter into the Honors Program.
An application will only be processed once a completed application packet, including the letters of recommendation, is received by the Honors director.
The Honors director will then supply the application to the Honors Admissions Committee to determine if membership is granted. Early application is highly recommended since membership in the Honors Program is competitive and limited.

At Washington Adventist University our motto is “Gateway to Service.” We believe in serving others as part of everyday life. In addition, Service Day is a day dedicated to lending a hand in our community. It gives the chance for students to positively impact their community. This takes place once a semester, twice an academic year. There are many projects that we engage in from cleaning up Sligo Creek to helping out at schools in the area.
