"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.
