Students can complete special academic work to earn a Departmental Honors Scholar designation. Departmental Scholar designations are available in all academic departments and schools at Illinois State University. This designation is noted on all student diplomas and transcripts.
Although the criteria for becoming a Departmental Honors Scholar vary from one department/school to another, all students who wish to receive Departmental Honors must be a member of the Honors Program in good standing. This means that you must complete 3 hours of Honors credit each semester you are in the program, including the semester in which you will graduate.
Specific criteria for each major are available from this website.
Honors Liaisons are an excellent resource for students to learn how they can incorporate their Honors experiences into their major requirements.
