General Honors in Arts and Sciences


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Programs All Levels

General honors in arts and sciences shall be awarded to graduating seniors who have completed five approved courses, with at least one course from each of the areas of mathematics, science, humanities, and social science, and with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5. Only grades of “A” and “B” may count toward the General Honors grade point average requirement of at least 3.5 in those five courses and students must have an overall grade point average of 3.5. Also, only courses with three or more hours of credit may count toward General Honors.

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

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

No credit toward General Honors shall be given for high school courses or transfer courses (including AP, CLEP, Study Abroad credit or substitutions) unless approved by the General Honors Committee.
