Barrett, The Honors College, offers academically high-achieving, well-rounded students unique opportunities designed to maximize their time at Arizona State University. The Barrett student body reflects intellectual and social interests covering the entire spectrum of degree programs available at the four metropolitan Phoenix campuses of ASU. (At present, Barrett enrollment is not available to students pursuing a solely online degree or in a major at the ASU Lake Havasu City campus.)

There is no single type of Barrett student and no “typical” honors experience. Instead, students are given great freedom and support to explore, create, and pursue their own distinctive education inside and outside the classroom. For their first two years, Barrett students live in the honors community at the ASU campus of their major and during their first year take the 6-credit course sequence called The Human Event. ASU graduates with Barrett distinction attend the best graduate schools and have great success finding jobs in their field.

Students interested in Barrett must first apply to Arizona State University and then may begin the separate Barrett application. Prospective honors college students should be mindful of deadlines and work to ensure that a complete application, not one that is simply submitted, is on file by the appropriate date.
