Honors Minor

The Honors minor provides students in most programs of study the opportunity to enrich their education through Honors coursework. The minor requires a minimum of 13 credits of Honors work with no grade below a B in Honors courses, and an overall GPA of 3.5 upon graduation. The 13 credits are not meant to be taken in addition to your degree requirements, but are Honors courses and contract options associated with required or elective courses. Upon completion of the 13 credits and your degree program, the Honors minor will be designated on your official transcript.
You may participate in Honors even if you do not plan to complete the minor. Please contact the Honors Coordinator for details.
