Special Considerations and Policies

  • Honors students may not use AP, IB or concurrent enrollment to opt out of any Honors requirements. Student’s entering with those qualification will still be able to use them for general education and University wide requirements.
  • Honors students who have passed the AP English or English Literature exams, therefore fulfilling the lower-division writing requirement, may fulfill the Honors writing requirement by taking Honors 3200.
  • Students enrolled in the Honors College may also take classes offered through Departmental Honors if they have fulfilled the pre-requisites to do so. These Departmental Honors courses count as electives.
  • If a student who is no longer in good standing with the Honors College wishes to retake an Honors course, he/she must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA in order to retake the course. In addition, he/she must wait to register for the course until Honors students in good standing have completed registration.
  • Transfer Exceptions (59+ credits): 6 classes are required for the Degree; 2 Core Courses, 3 Electives, 1 Thesis Course & Thesis Project. Make an appointment with an Honors advisor for more information. Note: High school concurrent enrollment students are not considered transfer students.
  • Honors Certificate Honors students who complete 5 required courses (2 Intellectual Traditions, 1 Honors Writing and 2 Honors Electives) can apply for the Honors Certificate.
