Graduation Requirements and Recognition

Students at graduation

To graduate as a member of the Honors College, a student must complete an Honors College Academic Progress Plan (HCAPP) every year (due in May), complete at least eight Honors-caliber courses, be a member in good standing at the time of graduation, and have earned a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.2. For students completing a second degree, which includes completing an additional 30 credits beyond those required for the first degree, two additional Honors-caliber courses are required to graduate as a member of the Honors College in that second degree.

Honors College affiliation will  be noted in the graduation program and on the student's diploma and transcript. Each graduating member wears an Honors College stole during the commencement ceremonies.
