In order to complete the Honors Program, each student must meet the continued eligibility criteria in addition to completing the program requirements. To verify continued eligibility, the Honors Program staff conducts an annual review of each Honors student’s transcript every summer. Following that review, Honors students who did not meet the annual requirements by the end of spring quarter will be emailed about their dismissal from the program for the upcoming academic year. All other Honors students will automatically continue in the program for the upcoming academic year.
There are several components to completing the Honors Program. In addition to maintaining continued eligibility each year, Honors students must fulfill the Honors Program requirements. This includes meeting a minimum GPA and completing the required number of Honors Experiences and community service hours. At the start of their final quarter, Honors students must submit an Honors Completion Form to our office noting any Honors coursework in progress (the deadline to submit this form is the same as declaring graduation candidacy with the Registrar's Office). When students ultimately complete the Honors Program, they earn the Academic Excellence Award.
