Curriculum & Program Requirements
GPA Requirement: Honors students must earn and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 in order to stay in the program. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from the program.
Graduating through the Honors Program: Students who have completed the required coursework and maintained the minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 graduate with an Honors distinction on their transcripts, an award above the Latin honors (cum laude, etc). Most of our graduates go on to study in professional schools (medicine or law) or graduate programs in their disciplines. A number of Honors students also successfully compete for post-graduate scholarships and fellowships such as the Truman, Marshall, and Rhodes Scholarships, and the Fulbright Fellowships.
