Good Standing in the Honors College
After the completion of your first semester in the Honors College, you must meet the following requirements to continue to receive the Honors College Scholarship and remain in good standing:
- You must maintain continuous full-time status in the university by enrolling in and completing at least 12 units each fall and spring semester.
- You must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in Honors courses, and an overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors (all students with 89 or fewer completed units), or 3.2 for seniors (all students with 90 or more completed units.*)
- You must meet all curricular and co-curricular requirements.
*A cumulative GPA of 3.3 is required to graduate from the Honors College.
Students will be placed on probation after their first term below the required GPA and may become academically ineligible to participate in the Honors College if their cumulative GPA remains below the 3.0 for a second term. Students need to complete at least 6 Honors College units by the end of the first year in the college, 12 Honors College units by the end of the second year, and 18 Honors College units by the end of the third year. Students who fall below these standards will be placed on probation for one term and become academically ineligible to participate in the Honors College if they fail to reach the standards at the end of the probationary term. Courses taken to fulfill requirements for the Honors College may not be taken on a pass grading option.
*A cumulative GPA of 3.3 and an Honors GPA of 3.0, in addition to full credits completed, are required to graduate from the Honors College.
