The basis for membership in the Arts and Sciences (ASC) Honors Program is a rigorous curriculum and high achievement.
- Maintain a minimum 3.4 cumulative grade point average;
- Choose general education courses according to the Honors Guide to the General Education requirements for your degree, and follow any honors requirements stipulated by your major department (generally speaking, a good guideline may be to aim to complete at least six honors or 4000-level classes over the course of your freshman and sophomore years*); and
- Submit an Honors Contract at the conclusion of your second year of study - by 5:00pm on the last day of finals.
*If your major program of study requires a large number of prerequisite courses, it may not be feasible for you to complete six honors or 4000-level courses by the end of your sophomore year. If you find yourself in this situation, you should plan to take honors or 4000-level courses when appropriate and submit an Honors Contract by the end of your sophomore year to ensure continued membership in the ASC Honors Program. Consult an ASC honors advisor for details.
