Honors College Scholarship, Graduation Recognition and Designation

Students admitted to the program receive four-year academic scholarships covering the cost of tuition and fees (less any TOPS scholarship award) and partial room and board. Other opportunities for students include priority registration and individualized academic counseling, small class size with discussion-style format, and increased mentoring from professors. The program is supplemented by special honors events (seminars, field trips, and conferences), cultural opportunities, and social activities. Honors courses are designated on University transcripts, and recognition is given to Honors College graduates at commencement and on diplomas.

Requirements for Honors College Designation

To earn the Honors College diploma, students must graduate with at least 24 honors hours and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0. The honors hours must be approved by the director of the Honors College and should include HUMN 105H; ENGL 204H or ENGL 221H; HONS 100 (2 hours); and HONS 200 (2 hours).
