Maintaining your Honors status

Honors Program students must maintain a GPA of 3.00 in the first year to take Honors courses and remain in the Honors Program. After the second year and in subsequent years, Honors Program students must maintain a minimum of a 3.20 overall GPA. First semester freshmen who fall below a 3.00 will be placed on probation and will be notified about their probationary status. They will not be allowed to take Honors courses while their GPAs remain below 3.00. If their GPAs remain below a 3.00 at the end of their first year, they will be contacted and removed from the Honors Program.

All Honors Program students will be reviewed yearly after spring semester grades are posted. Any Honors students falling below a 3.20 GPA at the end of any year of study will be contacted and removed from the Honors Program.

Important note for first-semester Honors Program students: Honors Program students who are in their first semester will enroll in the next semester's courses before grades for the first semester are posted. Students who do not meet the minimum GPA requirement of 3.00 after grades are posted will lose their enrollment in any Honors courses.

Former Honors Program students may apply for readmission once their GPAs improve to a 3.40 or higher. Please contact the Honors Program office for more information about readmission.
