Accept the Challenge!

The Guerra Honors Program serves academically talented and ambitious students who value intellectual growth and want to make the most of their undergraduate education. The program provides students a flexible, challenging, and innovative curriculum that helps them develop academically, personally, and professionally.

Students of all majors at UTPA may join the Guerra Honors Program. In fact, no one particular academic major or career goal is more suited to the program than any other. Membership in the Guerra Honors Program is a privilege and a commitment, but previous graduates of the progam have found it a tremendous source of enrichment as they move through and beyond UTPA into various avenues of success.

The Guerra Honors Program is always interested in students who wish to think big when it comes to their academic and professional ambitions.

On your next visit to UTPA, visit our office in the Student Academic Center (STAC) Room no:2.101 or call (956) 665-3386. Our staff will answer your questions and introduce you to the UTPA Honors community.

We look forward to hearing from you.
