Program Requirements

The Honors College strives to make you competitive at the highest levels by offering classes that are more engaging, experiential and challenging.

And we suspect you’ve never turned your back on an academic challenge! Below are the requirements for students to graduate with Honors.

Honors College Scholar - 21 hours 

In order to graduate as an Honors College Scholar, students must complete 21 hours of honors courses. The hours in the Collins Scholar program will count toward those 21 hours. Prior to advising, students will receive a list of honors courses for the upcoming semester. In addition students may complete honors contracts in non-honors courses. Instruction for contracts will be sent to students prior to advising and again at the beginning of each semester. 

Honors College Fellow - 26 Hours (Honors Scholar + Senior Project)

Honors students have the option of completing an Honors Thesis in their senior year, and are required to take two additional classes. Students who complete their senior project earn the designation of Honors College Fellow.
