Helping students fully realize their intellectual and personal potential.

"Active" status in The Honors College

In the first semester in the Honors College, students must enroll in at least three hours of honors coursework. To maintain active status in the Honors College, students must take an honors course, complete an honors contract, or complete an honors experience each semester. Additionally, students must meet the following benchmarks:

 

  • By the start of the Fall semester in the second year, students must accumulate a minimum of six total honors hours and/or points.
  • By the start of the Fall semester in the third year, students must accumulate a minimum of fifteen total honors hours and/or points.
  • By the start of the Fall semester in the fourth year, students must accumulate a minimum of twenty-four total honors hours and/or points.

 

Students who fall short of the Fall semester benchmarks are allowed one semester to catch up before losing active status. To maintain active status, the student must make up the number of hours/points that they lacked and take an additional three hours/points in the Fall semester.
