The Bantivoglio Honors Concentration is not a separate program, but rather is integrated into the course work required by the student’s selected degree program. Honors courses are used to complete various elements in the student’s degree requirement (e.g., major courses, general education requirements, and free electives); they are not "extra" courses and will not add to the number of courses a student takes. Students earn a degree from a specific College/Program/Department and a designation as a Bantivoglio Honors Scholar. Each Honors course completed is listed on the student's transcript as such.
Participation in and completion of the Honors Concentration requires that students apply to and be accepted in the program. (See Application Process for further information.)
Completing the Honors Concentration requires passing a minimum of eight (8) Honors courses with a grade of C or higher, ideally including four (4) interdisciplinary courses and/or Honors courses outside one’s major. Honors courses are prorated so that transfer students (internal and external) and students graduating early are not penalized; the total number is calculated at a rate of one (1) Honors course per semester with a minimum of four (4) required.
Students must earn a GPA of 3.45 in their Honors courses to graduate with the Honors Concentration and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.33 in order to graduate with an Honors Concentration. Students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 to remain in good standing with the Honors Concentration, keeping in mind the graduation standards. Students with lower averages will be notified of their probationary status; they must attain the necessary GPAs within the time specified in order to remain in Honors.
In addition to course progress and grade standards, the Honors Concentration requires active participation in Honors recommended activities; a service component; and adherence to ethical standards of behavior. Details are outlined in our Privileges, Policies, Procedures, and Standards brochure.
