The purpose of The Honors Program is to give students who have demonstrated exceptional academic skill, and who wish to explore areas above and beyond the normal classroom requirements, the opportunity to participate in courses and activities which present strenuous intellectual and personal challenges.
|The curriculum of the program includes two core requirements:|
|• Completion of a minimum of four credit hours of interdisciplinary seminars|
|• Completion of an honors thesis or an honors service project|
|Admission to the Honors Program|
|Students admitted to the Honors Program will be required to demonstrate that they possess the abilities and motivation to succeed as an honors student. In addition, students will be required to meet two of the following criteria:|
|• Composite ACT of 27 (or above)|
|• 3.5 GPA/4.0 Scale|
|• Top 10% of their high school graduating class|
It is important to note, however, that any student who is interested in the program, and who provides references, and evidence of academic success (academic success is defined as a minimum GPA of 3.5 for all college work) may apply for admission into the program.
