  • Minimum overall college grade point average of 3.2;
  • Minimum grade point average of 3.4 in major;
  • Faculty sponsorship;

Provisional Admission to the Honors Program

We may admit students to the Honors Program on a provisional basis if:

  1. They are pending completion of one of the above criteria
  2. They are transfer students with high grade point averages who have no previous Honors work
  3. Other unanticipated circumstances.

The Honors Committee will set terms for the provisional admission and must specify the time limit and action(s) required by the student for removing the provisional status.
