Continuing in the Honors Program
In order to continue in the Honors Program, students must maintain at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA, and at least a 3.3 GPA in honors courses. If a student falls below either of these, he or she will be placed on a semester probation. If the GPA criteria are not met by the following semester, the student will not be permitted to continue in 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.

To apply, please log in to the honors application with your WSC username and password.
