Maintaining Honors Eligibility
Honors students, to remain eligible,must maintain a 3.5 GPA, attend two Lectures and Cultural Events per semester and do 10 hours of community service per semester. Failure to maintain these standards can result in loss of Honors eligibility. Any student that drops below a 3.5 goes on Honors Probation for a semester. If at the end of that probationary semester the student's GPA remains below a 3.5, the student is no longer in the program. Once a cumulative 3.5 GPA is again obtained, the student may seek re-admittance to the program.
Students that complete the University Honors Program requirements will be recognized at our annual Honors Graduation banquet, and receive notification on their transcript.
