American Honors Online

American Honors Online

We are pleased to announce that American Honors will be available globally online for the 2020-21 academic year through Colorado State University Global (CSU Global). American Honors online will provide students with the option to come to the United States after one semester or one year (depending on the COVID-19 issues) either to:

1. Complete American Honors at one off our 3 campuses in the United States, or
2. Transfer American Honors credits to any university in the United States.

Why Start American Honors Online

By starting American Honors online you can

  1. Start your education on-time and graduate 2024 and have better job and graduate school opportunities than students who defer.

    Graduating in 2024 is very important. Many students will defer their studies this year. Those students will begin their studies in 2021 and graduate in 2025 making the class of 2025 much larger than normal. By starting on-time in the fall of 2020, you will graduate in 2024 with a smaller than normal class. Graduating in a smaller class means you’ll have better job and graduate school opportunities than students who defer and graduate in the class of 2025.

  2. Use your time constructively. We have all had our lives interrupted. We are all home and hoping to be back to normal soon. But for the next year when day-to-day life is expected to be much different than normal, you can use your time to further your education.
