Honors Program -Mac Scholars Banner 12

About the Honors Program...


The McAllaster Scholars are named after Dr. Elva McAllaster, who began teaching the first "honors" course at Greenville University in the 1950s. In the time since, we've grown into a full-fledged honors program that accepts approximately thirty new students each year.  

Today, GU's McAllaster Scholars program nurtures excellent students who are especially gifted to serve God and neighbor through the work of Christian learning and scholarship. 

Consider how your future might be transformed by the opportunities you'll have as a McAllaster Scholar at Greenville University. 

  • Intimate learning community- smaller honors classes and one-on-one relationships with honors faculty provide an intentional, collaborative liberal learning environment.
  • Academically enriched course of study- our best faculty offer a distinctive, integrated general education curriculum designed for our brightest and most motivated students.
  • Atmosphere of vibrant engagement- McAllaster scholars are equipped and empowered to become individuals of influence who invigorate the intellectual life of the campus and serve the broader Greenville community.
