Your future at Barrett

Barrett, The Honors College, is a community of students within Arizona State University who enjoy the considerable resources of a premier Research I university combined with the close, personal attention provided by the staff, faculty, and deans of the highest ranked honors college in the nation.

Historically, the Barrett experience has only been available to ASU undergraduates studying at the Downtown, Polytechnic, Tempe, and West campuses. In the fall of 2021, Barrett welcomed its first ever cohort of ASU Online students as part of an exciting pilot program to explore expanding access to the unique honors curriculum and experience. Barrett Online is currently entering a second phase with plans to enroll small groups in fall 2022 and spring 2023.  The Barrett experience is not currently available at ASU’s Lake Havasu campus or other university learning centers.

Barrett students benefit from being part of a fully developed four-year residential community and enjoy distinctive honors-only internship, research, and travel opportunities. The unique honors curriculum integrates seamlessly into their ASU degree requirements, while a three-pronged advising system and a dedicated core of honors faculty are in place to ensure a deeply supportive environment.

After graduation, Barrett students attend the best graduate schools, have tremendous success in national fellowship competitions, and accept positions with prominent non-profit and Fortune 500 companies.
