Academic Honors

Excellence in scholastic achievement is recognized each semester by the awarding of Academic Honors. Initially, qualifying students must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours with an overall grade-point average of 3.5 to be considered eligible. Thereafter, a minimum of six credit hours in a semester and an earned semester grade-point average of at least a 3.5 is required. All course work must be at the 100 level or above. Classes using the credit/no credit grading system, audited, and withdrawn courses are not counted in the calculation and are not used to determine the minimum required credits for eligibility. Repeated courses excluded for the semester will be calculated with the original grade. Students who receive an incomplete for the semester are not eligible until the incomplete course has been graded.

Students awarded academic honors will receive a letter in the mail, and will be included on the honors list published online each semester. Academic Honors will also be noted on their unofficial transcript each semester the award is earned.
