Incoming students can be eligible to participate in the University Honors Program starting their first semester based on a few factors. If incoming students aren’t initially eligible, after they complete their first semester, any student with a GPA of 3.0 may enroll in an honors course.

Incoming Students Eligibility Factors

  • SAT or ACT score
  • high school GPA
  • class rank (if available)
  • incoming students who receive a President's or Regents' Scholarship also are eligible for the Honors Program.

To complete the University Honors Program, after taking an honors course or two, a student must submit the Declaration Form to their College Coordinator and fulfill the specific requirements of the honors program of his or her college, which includes 18 credits and a required grade point average.
