Participation in the Honors Program allows students to earn the special "Honors Program Scholar" designation. The designation is indicated on student transcripts and in the Commencement Booklet. Honors Program Scholars also wear a red cord at Commencement. (Students will be contacted prior to Commencement to pick up their cords.)
There is no application process for this designation. Qualifying students will be awarded the designation automatically if they meet the criteria.
To achieve this designation, students must:
Earn a minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA at the time of graduation;
Participate in the Honors Program a minimum of 3 semesters;
Successfully complete a minimum of three Honors Learning Experiences; and
Continue to complete one Honors Learning Experience each semester in the Honors Program through graduation.
Summer term does not qualify as a semester. Students may petition by providing a compelling rationale for an exception.
