Graduation with Honors
The program offers three programs for Graduation with Honors. Although each has minimum GPA requirements, the primary emphasis is on the successful completion of an undergraduate degree program including a Senior Honors Thesis or Project.
Graduation with Departmental Honors stresses upper division work in the students' major department. The requirements are sufficiently flexible to enable undergraduates who join honors in their junior year to participate in and complete this program.
Graduation with General Honors requires sustained participation in honors work throughout the undergraduate years. Students who complete this program take approximately one fourth of their credits in honors course and independent study.
The rigorous standards of performance required for Graduation with University Honors make this the highest recognition the university can bestow on a graduating senior.
