Honors Program Graduation Requirements

1) At least 3 credits must be from taking an Honors Colloquium - an interdisciplinary research based course designated HON 298x (example: HON 298G)

2) The other 6 credits can be from a combination of honors courses, including:

  • Honors Colloquium - you can take more than one of these if you choose.
  • Honors Course -  a course  that's designated as an honors section of course (example, BIO 180H),
  • Honors Component - a 1-credit independent study added to a regularly offered course, which converts the credits of that course to honors credits (example: HIS 121 with a component becomes a 3-credit honors course).  Can typically only be used for one of the three required honors courses.
  • Honors Independent Study - an individual course with a faculty member, 3 credits maximum.  Can only be used for one of the three required honors courses.

3) Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher.

4) Earn a grade of B or better in each honors course
