Honors Recognition

The appropriate designation, based on honors curriculum completed, appears on the student's diploma and final transcript.  An Honors College student who completes the Honors College curriculum that does not follow the Department Honors requirements (or the department does not have a Department Honors program) will graduate as a University Honors Scholar. If an Honors College student completes their Honors College curriculum by following the Departmental Honors program requirements, the student will graduate as both a University Honors Scholar and Departmental Honors Scholar. A student, who is not in the Honors College, who chooses to complete the Departmental Honors Program requirements will graduate as a Departmental Honors Scholar.

  • University Honors Scholar - University Honors Scholars complete Honors English composition (or an Honors English seminar), 15 units of Honors courses (9 units must be Honors College seminars, an Honors project (may be completed by the academic Departmental Honors requirements). They must have an overall GPA of 3.3 and maintain a 3.0 average for all courses taken to fulfill Honors College requirements.

  • Department Honors Scholar - Department Honors Scholars complete only the honors requirements in their academic major.
