"Active" status in The Honors College
Students are considered "active" in The Honors College as freshmen and sophomores
if they are undertaking at least three hours of honors work each semester and nine
honors hours every two consecutive semesters. This means that the number of honors
credit hours completed in the previous semester (with grades of A or B) plus the number
of honors credit hours that a student is taking during the current semester must total
at least nine.
Juniors and seniors are considered active if they undertake at least three credit hours of honors work each semester.
Active status is determined every semester, and active participants are eligible for fringe benefits including priority enrollment for the following semester, use of the honors lounge and computer lab, extended library check-out privileges, and the option to live in honors housing.
