Other Frequently Asked Questions

  • Yes. Once accepted, you must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to stay in the Honors Program. Should your GPA dip below 3.5, your Academic Advisor will be notified to reach out to intervene.

    If your GPA drops below a 3.0, you will be immediately removed from Honors Program. Please note that the monitoring of GPA is dynamic. Unlike SAP review periods, students will be removed from Honors Program if they drop below a 3.0 at any time.

    Students removed from Honors Program may reapply once they meet the minimum 3.75 GPA requirement by submitting an Honors Program Reapplication Form which will be available in the Student Portal.

  • No, you can opt out of the Honors Program at any time while continuing to pursue your Global Campus degree. There is no penalty for withdrawing from the Honors Program, and all completed Honors coursework will be listed on the transcript and count toward your Global Campus degree.

  • Honors Program courses are not designed to be harder than non-Honors courses. Instead, Honors courses are designed to incorporate different learning experiences, and you may find that they are more interactive than courses outside of the Honors Program. In general, Honors courses emphasize how you think, rather than what you think.

  • Although Honors Program courses are only open to students in the Honors Program, these courses make up only a portion of your academic credits. All other courses may include non-Honors Program students. As a result, this gives you an opportunity to feel a sense of community with your fellow Honors Program peers, while encouraging a sense of community with peers outside of the Honors Program as well.

  • The Honors Program curriculum was specifically designed to complement the curriculum for your major. The two lower division courses are designed to satisfy General Education requirements while HON 490 is designed to satisfy electives. If, you do not have any more electives available or you have fulfilled your General Education requirements already, the Honors Program curriculum could add additional courses to your program. Speak with your Academic Advisor for more information on how Honors Program will fit into your current plan.

  • Honors Program courses generally have small class sizes and meet in a format that emphasizes discussion and student participation. Honors Program courses also emphasize critical thinking, and there is a great deal of interaction among you and your fellow students and between you and faculty.

  • Possibly. How these courses will impact your program length and graduation date depend on the number of courses taken, room available in the electives, and so on. Speak with your Academic Advisor for more information on how Honors Program will fit into your current plan.
