Learning by doing - that's the vision of UT's founder and our college's namesake, Jesup Scott
We will work with students to define their goals, develop their interests, and put
together a customized educational plan that will transform their future vision into
reality. Students have the freedom to choose in-class, virtual and out-of-class experiences.

Named to honor the former newspaper editor who established The University of Toledo, the Jesup Scott Honors College was founded in 1963, making it one of the oldest honors programs at a state university.
Relaunched in 2013, the college is highly selective and distinguishes itself from other honors colleges with a unique blend of admission requirements that not only take into account academic performance, but also activities that demonstrate a high level of motivation and achievement.
The college is a pioneer in experiential learning for its students -- which means internships, co-ops, research, service learning, study abroad and more — as well as accelerated, three-year degree programs.
