Honors Requirements

Departmental Honors
Students may graduate with honors in their field of study in most bachelor's degree majors. To receive honors, the student must have at least a 3.5 grade point average in courses taken in the major and/or pass a comprehensive examination in the subject. The student must also complete an honors thesis or project. This last requirement is the heart of the honors program, for each student must work closely with a faculty member to define the project, carry out the research and investigation, and write the final report or prepare the final project. Students may receive credit through independent study for their work on an honors project. The projects must be accepted by the department. Students who successfully complete these requirements will receive the notation on their transcript that they have graduated with honors in their field of study. For specific requirements, see the section on Honors Requirements under the bachelor's degree program description.

Undergraduates who meet the qualifications will receive the associate's or bachelor's degree summa cum laude, magna cum laude, or cum laude as follows:
- Cumulative GPA of at least 3.90: summa cum laude
- Cumulative GPA of at least 3.75: magna cum laude
- Cumulative GPA of at least 3.50: cum laude
