Neil Armstrong will be given his award in June at a ceremony in the British Embassy in Washington DC.
The 77-year-old will receive his degree from British-born astronaut Piers John Sellars, a former student at the Scottish university.
Mr Armstrong made history on 20 July 1969 when he and Buzz Aldrin docked the spacecraft Apollo 11 on the moon.
A spokesman for Edinburgh University said: "The university has been working on arranging this for some time.
"Neil Armstrong has accepted our invitation and he will receive his honorary degree as part of a programme of events in Washington DC in June."
