Dean Kristen HermannBarrett Honors College is the model for honors education in the United States.  The college is known for the ability to scale individual care for students across all four ASU campuses while providing an outstanding honors education to the most diverse honors college student body in the United States. Barrett students thrive in an honors residential community of accomplished and creative individuals from varying cultures and socio-economic backgrounds all over the world.

ASU’s size, number of majors, student organizations, and student support services is an advantage and provides important opportunities for Barrett students to contribute to the student life of the institution in meaningful ways. The honors college has the largest residential profile at the university with students living on campus from all class years. This significant presence on campus with honors students in leadership positions university-wide benefits the entire student body at ASU.

Whether you live on or off campus or pursue honors at the Tempe, Downtown, Polytechnic or West campuses at ASU, we have a dedicated community of faculty, academic advisors, and student engagement and residential staff who work together to advance your honors experience. As committed scholars with impact in and out of the classroom, we hope you will utilize our resources and networks as you pursue a full range of academic, personal growth and professional development opportunities across all four campuses.
