Continuing in the Honors Program
In order to continue in the Honors Program, students must maintain a 3.3 cumulative GPA or greater, and a 3.3 GPA or better in honors courses. If a student falls below this criteria, he or she will be placed on a semester probation. If the GPA criteria are not met by the following semester, the student will be dropped from the program. The student may apply for reinstatement into the program at a later date but must meet the criteria set forth for a non-honors student.
