Honors Scholar Program


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The requirements for becoming an Honors Scholar in the Arts and Sciences are: complete five approved courses in the areas of mathematics, science, humanities, and social science with at least one course from each area; and earn at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA overall and in these five courses. Only grades of “A” and “B” may count toward the 3.5 minimum grade point average requirement in the five approved Honors Scholar courses.

Students who complete a single undergraduate major may not satisfy Honors Scholar requirements with any course in their major. (For example, a student whose only major is mathematics may not use any course carrying the MATH prefix to satisfy Honors  Scholar requirements.)

Students who complete two or more majors may use any approved courses to satisfy Honors Scholar requirements.

No credit toward becoming an Honors Scholar shall be given for high school courses or transfer courses (including AP, CLEP, Study Abroad credit or substitutions) unless approved by the Honors Scholar Committee. Also, only courses with three or more credits may count toward becoming an Honors Scholar.
