To graduate with an Honors Diploma, a student must be accepted into the Honors Academy and complete a minimum of 15 hours with Honors credit. These 15 hours should include HONR 1110 (Honors Inquiry), although exceptions may be made with permission from the Director. The 15 hours may be earned either by:
- contracting for Honors credit in a section of regular classes
- taking Honors sections of a regular class
- or a combination of these
Most students who wish to graduate with an Honors Diploma will need to achieve at least some of their hours by devising Honors contracts with faculty members. In order to graduate with an Honors Diploma, a student must have a 3.25 GPA. Students receive Honors credit for only if they receive an A or a B in an Honors class or Honors Contract class.
