Track II Honors Scholars

Track II is for current and transfer students only.

All Track II Honors Scholars complete 24 credit hours of Honors coursework. The Honors curriculum does not supplant or alter a student's requirements in General Education or the major. However, many Honors courses will double or even triple count toward General Education requirements or the student's major requirements as well as toward the Honors total.

Honors electives can be any combination of Honors Gen Ed courses, Honors seminars, or Honors options. Unless a student opts to take many extra hours in Honors, the following course requirements can be completed within a normal four-year sequence--even for students who double major. Track II students who successfully complete all their Honors requirements will have the designation of Honors Scholar included on their transcripts and diplomas, as well as the indication of graduation With Distinction in their major. In addition, the Honors Program gives each Honors graduate a medallion to wear at graduation.

Honors students are required to maintain "good standing" in the program. Failure to meet these standards or violation of the University Honors Code will be grounds for probation or dismissal. Please refer to Maintaining Good Standing for important information.


Track II students who enter the Honors Program in their second, third, or fourth semester of university work should begin taking Honors courses as soon as possible. Track II students should especially consider using the Honors option in courses in their major field of study. Depending on the semester of entry, Track II students may be eligible to complete an Area of Emphasis and/or an Honors Seminar Abroad. Track II students will begin their Senior Honors Project in the second semester of the junior year, submitting the project proposal and completing the first 499 course. The final year should be devoted to completing the Senior Honors Project and any remaining Honors course requirements.
